“Former Top Chef Masters contestant Herb Wilson joins the Menin Hospitality Team as the Executive Chef of Red Ginger restaurant, bringing his talents to the concept which is set to launch in early Winter 2014. A New York City native, Chef Wilson has an international culinary background mastering French, Asian and Caribbean cooking. He is the only chef to have received a two-star review from the New York Times on three separate occasions by three different reviewers at three different restaurants. Wilson describes the cuisine as Japanese and Thai-inspired, featuring a sushi bar with an omakase elements and binchotan charcoal robata offerings. The menu will also showcase locally sourced items as well as ingredients flown in directly from Japan. “
According to Miami Mirror :
“Chef Herb Wilson, formerly chef for Sushisamba Las Vegas, is already on the job preparing for the opening of Red Ginger. I asked Maximilloano Silva, who oversees a $40 million restaurant portfolio for Sushisamba Brands and who is General Manager of Sushisamba Miami Beach on Lincoln Road, if he believed Red Ginger could survive in the South of Fifth area which does not have anywhere near the foot traffic Sushisamba enjoys on bustling Lincoln Road. Location and foot traffic are not everything, he said, Mainstream traffic may not be your market, and it is a big mistake to depend on walk-ins no matter how busy your street is. You must bring the market for your concept to your establishment with consistently excellent food and service. That rings true. So many fortunes large and small have been lost in the restaurant business that sage advice is oft given to ambitious entrepreneurs: Never own your own restaurant. Yet a few eateries have not only survived but thrived. May Red Ginger be good medicine for everyone.”
