Fodor's Expert Review Ginja
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Ginja's position in the culinary firmament is well deserved, but it does mean advance booking and dining at one of two sittings staggered from 7 pm during high season. Order the Around the World in a Spoon starter from the eclectic menu: six delicious mouthfuls, from eggplant with Parmesan to avocado sushi with ginger. Springbok Wellington with caramelized red cabbage and green beans is a delicious main course. End with chocolate-cherry parfait or lemon meringue with a twist. Service is slick, and the narrow entrance corridor, red walls, and black-and-white images of forks hint at the drama to unfold. Watch your step as you enter.
