Going to Fid's: what to order?
The pad thai is excellent indeed, like eastcoastal says. Dennis just gets it, unlike a lot of restos in this town that drown the damn stuff in an overly sweet ketchup-based sauce. Yech.
The fish soup at dinner with rouille is lovely, and is a bistro dish that is often forgotten these days. It's nice to see it on a menu. Hanger steaks are awesome, and not just because they've become trendy. They really are a wonderful, uber-meaty tasting cut.
depends on when you're going... at lunch, the pad thai is excellent... dinner, the fid cakes. Other than that, the menu is tight and fairly easy to navigate... it changes a lot (except for a few standbys like the pad thai and fid cakes), so go with an open mind and ask your server.
