Chef RJ Cooper Parts Ways With Vidalia

James Beard award winning chef RJ Cooper has parted ways with chef Jeff Buben's Vidalia, Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema tweeted Wednesday.

Cooper has set his sights on opening a neighborhood restaurant called Pigtails. And in the meantime, he tells Sietsema that he plans to serve the 24-course menu he launched this spring at Vidalia in an "underground" spot.
