"The setting worked well for a 3-person mid-week business lunch -- quiet enough for conversation, varied menu to suit everyone's tastes, above-average preparation and quality."

"The $20 3-course weekday lunch at Vidalia is great. I ordered spicy watermelon gazpacho, nouvelle etouffe, and a cheese plate dessert -- all with memorable flavor combinations. One can converse easily in the dining room. The service is reasonably attentive. What's not to like?"

Named for Barcelona's renowned food market, El Mercado de la Boqueria, Boqueria Washington, D.C.<br />features a seasonal ingredient-driven menu of expertly prepared tapas and regional Spanish cuisine under the direction of Barcelona native, chef Marc Vidal. Located on the corner of 19th and M, Boqueria offers residents and visitors of Washington D.C.'s bustling Dupont Circle neighborhood a taste of Barcelona. The restaurant is designed as a contemporary vision of<br />Barcelona's famed tapas bars and replicates the same look, feel, and flavor as its counterparts in New York City's Flatiron and Soho neighborhoods. In addition to the main dining room, Boqueria offers a private dining room as well as two semi-private dining areas and a seasonal outdoor patio.

"Amazing dishes include dates w/bacon, radishes, spinach, tortilla omelette of the day, churros w/chocolate. Seasonal special dessert of fresh strawberries was truly outstanding (prepared with caramelized white wine vinegar, orange zest, and pepper). Special sangria packed a delightful punch. Noisy place, hard for conversation. Would be nice if they could turn off individual speakers in the dining room to reduce the loud music by tables that don't enjoy it."
