Just a quick reminder for all of you out there still firming up your weekend plans. The Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival is this weekend, and if you’re still wondering whether or not it’s worth cramming yourself in with thousands of your fellow Philadelphians, there’s this to consider:
Saturday’s party will, among other things, serve as the first public tasting of the food from V Street–the new, casual vegan bar and restaurant from the Vedge crew, coming to 19th Street. They’re going to be serving Korean seitan tacos, vegan soft-serve and rutabaga red chile salad. And while yes, those 11 words may cause the carnivores in the crowd to recoil in horror, let’s all just remember that radishes didn’t really sound all that exciting either until the Vedge crew got a hold of them.
UPDATE: Rich Landau from V Street reached out with some new intel on V Street’s debut. He says: “I don’t know if it’s to late but I just wanted to let you know that our menu has changed a bit.We couldn’t score a soft serve machine in time so we are doing slutty brownies instead. We are also doing Korean tofu tacos and instead of the rutabaga salad we are doing an Israeli cous cous & garbanzo salad with spicy zhoug.”
