I just spoke to manager Branson Lee of Wild Ginger in Bronxville to report for my foodnotes column. He told me it is owned by Alan Lee and Jeff Qiu,the same people who have Watermoon in Rye and Wild Ginger in Ridgefield, Conn. and Great Neck, N.Y. They also own Ching’s Table and Sushi 25, both in New Canaan, Conn., Penang Grill in Greenwich, Conn.,Ã‚Â several restaurants Ã¢â‚¬â€ including another WIld Ginger Ã¢â‚¬â€ in New Jersey, and are working on opening a Wild Ginger in Manhattan at Columbus Avenue and 82nd Street.
This Wild Ginger opened last week in Bronxville. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a pan-Asian place, with modern decor in hues of yellow, orange and red. The menu ranges the gamut from China to Malaysia and Indonesia to Japan. Thai red curry, for example, might share the table with grilled lemongrass shrimp and the Bronxville Roll, made with vegetable tempura, spicy tuna and caviar.
The restaurant seats about 100 people. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a sushi bar, which seats eight, and a regular bar, which is decorated in white glass that changes color randomly. The manager says theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re hoping to get their liquor license by the weekend.
