Ming Tsai...

What is your perception of celebrity chef Ming Tsai. We stopped off at his bustling Blue Ginger in Wellesley, Mass. for early dinner the other night on our way down from Maine to home base in New York...
His take on East Meets West...his show.
His cuisine...(we enjoyed our dinner very much, we shared his signature double cut Pork Chop and New Zealand Rack of Lamb ((a whole rack)) with Asian influences...it was pricey, but quite good. Dessert, his Macadamia Nut Ice Cream with sesame crust was excellent! Actually all dishes lying on the counter for pick up looked super colorful, generous and exciting. Professional, well-attired waitstaff. The place had energy. We did not expect to see him because of his recent trip to China during the Olympics, but there he was expediting the line at the open kitchen and running from table to table to say hello to patrons...our neighboring table who were locals confided that he has always been very accessible.)
Was his show one of the first to innovate the whole Asian Fusion trend?
He's come quite a way from Dayton...
