Ginger Japanese Restaurant now at 88 Great Road is set to open on Wednesday. This will be the first retail business to open in the new Blake Block building. Ginger (which was forced to close in the summer of 2011 so the old building could be torn down) is almost three times larger than the original restaurant. While the building is new, the previous menu will be returning along with a few new items.

Seasonal outdoor dining will be available on the new patio.

It's good to see the first retail business finally open on the Blake Block. From looking at the interior construction, it looks like the other businesses such as Ken's Deli are only a few months from opening. The new restaurants should help revitalize this area of town. I expect the outdoor seating to be do well. It should be a good spot during the summer concerts on the common series
