Inspired by both the gastropubs of England and the izakaya of Japan, Ming Tsai’s Blue Dragon is a comfortable, neighborhood place to simply hang out, have a drink and enjoy some incredible food in Fort Point. Guided by feng shui master Natalia Kaylin, the restaurant’s interior combines Western machine-age influences like barn board and brick with the artistry and patina of Asian antiques.
Blue Dragon’s dinner menu features tapas-style snacks and small plates as well as a few signature platters available family-style. The lunch offerings, available for speedy online ordering, include Tsai's version of the Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich. The well-appointed bar has a sizeable collection of craft beers, worldly wines, premium sakes and festive cocktails, including Tsai's own communal Dragon Bowl.
