There are few exclusive Georgia-grown products that appear “for a limited time.” However, the Vidalia onion is our pride and joy. New York Times recently wrote up a feature on our superstar crop, where the ingredient appears on local restaurant’s menus.
However one chain restaurant, Applebee’s is re-naming their restaurant for one day only to celebrate the first Vidalia onion crop of the season. Next Friday, April 25, The Dunwoody Applebee’s location (130 Perimeter Center Place) will be renamed Vidalia-Bee’s.
The restaurant has developed a partnership with Vidalia Onion Committee and created a new grilled Vidalia Onion sirloin featuring local Vidalias. Bright and early at 6:30 a.m., the Executive Chef will welcome in the first batch of Vidalia onions from the farms and create the first dish of the season.
