Thanks to those who gave my advive about Vidalia. I thought the meal was pretty bad. The atmosphere and service were fabulous, but the food was worse than just not memorable, in fact, I may never forget the sea bass I had because I've never had worse, and I live in Columbus Ohio where I've had wonderful bass! I also had. I am not about to trash a restaurant based on one experience, but I cant see going there again. The venison carpaccio wasnt on the menu....and no one was ordering dessert so the lemon chess cake (?) didn't get tried, sad to say.
That said, i need a good place for take out tomorrow! Ill be around Dupont Circle if anyone has any advice!
