Our pals at Foobooz have some fun new details on the vegan spot coming to Rittenhouse, courtesy of the meat-free geniuses at Vedge. I’m sure more than a few of you are on the edges of your seats here.
First off, the restaurant officially has a name—V Street—and it’s going to center around an international street-food concept. Mmmmm. I definitely like the sound of that.
V Street will open at 126 South 19th Street. Head over to Foobooz for more details from Vedge’s Rich Landau.
It’s been a while since we had any news on the new restaurant coming from Vedge’s Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby. We knew that it was coming to Rittenhouse–specifically to 126 S. 19th Street which, yes, is the space right next door to Zama–and that it was set to open in the spring. But everything else about the place was a mystery.
Right up until Landau reached out this morning with some new details.
On Thursday, November 21st, Elixr Coffee is hosting coffee and cocktail competitions featuring bars and coffee shops around the city.
On this special night, a latte art throwdown featuring top baristas from sixteen coffee bars in Philadelphia will compete. That will be followed by a coffee-centric cocktail competition featuring bartenders from cocktail bars and restaurants (Vedge, The Corner, 1 Tippling Place, Farmers’ Cabinet and more) around town. It all goes down at Elixr Coffee, 207 Sydenham Street (between 15th and 16th Streets) at 6:30 p.m. As Elixr says, “Come to Taste the Magic. Come, and we All Win.”
