The Ginger Man's spring menu a burst of flavors

Roasted tomato tart
Spring is looking tasty at The Ginger Man in Albany.

The wine bar restaurant's spring menu from Stephen Barrett and Harley Bleitzhofer is laden with a variety of comfort and Old World-influenced foods:

Some examples from the new menu: cockles and mussels in a coconut curry milk broth; herb and goat cheese potato croquettes with truffled garlic cream; gluten-free vegetable bouillabaise over rice noodles; Scotch egg with maple mustard sauce; lamb meatloaf stuffed with white beans, feta, spinach and feta, and a roasted heirloom tart (pictured) containing creamed leeks over smoked tomato coulis, served with Maple Brook Farms Burrata, balsamic pearl onions and half roasted garlic bulb.

Lunch and dinner are served Monday through Friday, and dinner only on Saturday. Phone: (518) 427-5963.
