According to the website of Ginseng in Framingham, Qun Li (of Rice Garden and New Taste of Asia fame) is now employed as their executive chef.
The menu on their website and the few newspaper reviews seem to indicate that Ginseng is a typical "pan-asian" crapfest of mango this and crispy that and yakitori and shabu-shabu and they probably also have pad thai. It's not clear whether Qun Li is actively working in the kitchen there, or offering any creative input. I sent the proprietors a message asking if there was a secret menu, or if Sichuan dishes could be special-ordered, but I haven't heard back yet.
Anybody have any more info? It's breaking my heart to think that there will never be another Rice Garden or New Taste of Asia because the chef is getting his paycheck lending his name to Ginseng.
