A marriage between two or more cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw egg and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 toward dinner and drinks, or for $5, you get $10 toward lunch and drinks at Ginger Bistro in University City.
New to the Loop, Ginger Bistro fuses French and North American culinary touches with time-tested recipes from China, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, and the Pan-Pacific region to create a harmonious global summit of flavors. The menu boasts a variety of dishes prepared from fresh ingredients, each presented with a careful artist's touch and collapsible easel. Tasters run the gamut from the Philly cheese steak rolls ($4.95) to house specials such as Korean bulgoki beef ($12.95), banh mi sandwiches ($4.95), peppercorn bean curd ($6.95), curry fried rice ($6.95), and a selection of sushi ($4.50–$9.95). A $4.95 lunch menu is available between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., which sidekicks heroic dishes such as pineapple chicken fried rice and Mandarin pork with the delicious comic relief of the soup of the day.
Ginger Bistro's open, comfortable dining area is flanked by a stocked wet bar. The careful, thoughtful flair extends to their cocktails; sip specialties including the midnight margarita, its 901 tequila and Chambord and Grape Pucker served over ice, and the dragon's tail, a layered cocktail served with Bacardi dragonberry rum, mango sake, and unpublished fantasy novels.
