Ginger on 5th and 116 in Harlem

Ginger and Ginger Express (the take out section at the front of the restaurant) opened to great acclaim last weekend. This is the most beautiful restaurant up-Island! Maybe for miles.

The stand out dish is the appetizer of beef short ribs; so if you are not a vegetarian, dig right in!

The chicken in a pot (and what a pot--don't fall in) is a delicious and subtle adaptation of the traditional five-spice braised chicken.

The menu is rather modest at the moment, but the chef is adding new dishes every week.

Finally, the pecan-cherry muffin is the best muffin I've ever had. It is just the right size (you know you aren't eating a 600 calorie monster at Ginger).

Enjoy!
