Virgil's -- worst restaurant in NYC?

Blumie | Dec 19, 2010 12:49 AM

I ate at Virgil's for the first time on Friday. I got an email from a friend suggesting we meet there for lunch, and since the principal objective was to catch up with a former colleague rather than necessarily have a chowish meal, I didn't object. My catfish po'boy was inedible; I couldn't even choak it down. I hate to rush to a conclusion like "worst restaurant in NYC" based on a single experience (especially when NYC has so many contenders for that title), but this meal was so bad I can't imagine giving it a second chance.
