Fifteen years after opening Wellesley's Blue Ginger, popular Hub chef and PBS star Ming Tsai finally wants to feed people other than Rand Alexander's golfing buddies, and to do so has turned Fort Point's former A Street Deli into a tapas-heavy "Asian gastropub" that will also presumably publicize the tragically under-reported sad dragon epidemic.
Appreciate feng shui as you settle in at the reclaimed wood-plank bar before aggressively kicking the night off with a "for-two" rum, cinnamon, and OJ Dragon Bowl topped w/ a Gosling's Black Seal float
Or maybe just snag a 22oz-er of Longtrail Coffee Stout and/or couple of pints of Whale's Tale, Hop Notch IPA, and Sapporo.
Trend articles indicate that small plates are the thing these days, so get in on that with some bison sliders with teriyaki caramelized onions and shiitakes, salt & pepper shrimp, or mushroom & garlic chive potstickers
The hostess will seat you now.
And because man could live on small plates alone but that's lame, proceed to their family-style platters like prime club rump steak w/ black pepper umami butter, scallop & bacon pad thai, and even a fried rice that boasts not seven but eight different treasures.
