Vidalia Restaurant Review: With owner Jeffrey Buben once again overseeing the workings of the kitchen, Vidalia is restored to its former Southern-style glamour and its retro, somewhat Southern setting---to say nothing of its solid yet somewhat experimental Southern cooking. Sensitive to the whims of the season, Buben structures his menu so that meal planning is flexible; don’t count on always finding your favorite lobster salad with the same garnishes or the Carolina mountain trout with quite the same vegetables alongside. Gear up for really fine meals, with a starter of a luscious five-onion soup followed by such entrées as shrimp and grits or Shenandoah lamb loin. Want something casual? Consider one of Buben’s awesome burgers. Dreamy desserts include sugar spiced donuts or peanut butter crunch cake.
