Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"The house specialty dish is Wild Ginger fragrant duck, a succulent fresh duck spiced with cinnamon and star anise served with steamed buns, Sichuan peppercorn salt and sweet plum sauce."

Perfect Pairing
German Rieslings, RhĂ´ne varieties of all sorts, along with clean, vibrant whites and low-tannin reds pair well with the wide variety of regionally influenced Pan-Asian dishes on the menu.

Wine Events
The Sparkling Spring event, which takes place in April, showcases flights of sparkling wines from around the world paired with dishes from the menu, along with an entire menu dedicated to sparkling wine. Wild Ginger also participates in Paul Grieco’s Summer of Riesling with a Masters of Riesling winemaker dinner. In addition to pairing Wild Ginger’s menu to Rieslings, the interactive wine list will feature QR codes, which can be scanned by guests in order to learn more about the producers, regions and tasting notes of their selections.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
