V Street Starts Brunch

v-street-brunch-waffle-400

V Street is now serving brunch.

Brunch begins this weekend at V Street. Of course one brunch staple that won’t be on the menu at Rich Landau’s and Kate Jacoby’s vegan restaurant is eggs. But with dishes like Togarashi Home Fries; Pho Spiced Mushrooms and Biscuit; and Waffles with Ponzu Maple Syrup you won’t go wonting.

And since brunch is just breakfast without booze, V Street is offering a special breakfast cocktail of La Luchadora (tequila, tomato, house grenadine and hot sauce). And to get the day going, there will also be Horchata Iced Coffee.

Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby aren’t the first res- taurateurs to summon night- market memories with bare bulbs strung beneath a black ceiling. But the globetrotting vegans behind Vedge have uncorked an unusually pent- up desire for street snacks at this energetic offshoot of their stately mother ship.

But eat here and you can feel how long the pressure’s been building to yank every taco and noodle bowl into the meat-and-dairy-free realm. Read more »

Three Bells for V Street

The newest seats at V Street.

Craig LaBan visited V Street this weekend, three months after Vedge chefs Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby opened their Rittenhouse spot.

Vedge fans can get a more casual, globe-trotting taste of Rich Landau’s culinary magic at this affordable Rittenhouse Square ode to international street foods, which just happens to also be vegan. From Hungarian fritters to Latin-inspired carrot “asado,” borders melt away on these small plates, thanks to Landau’s inventive vision and uniquely wide-ranging command of bold ethnic flavors. The long and minimalist three-room space is an intimate and cozy haven to graze, watch chefs work the grill at the back kitchen counter, or sip an excellent cocktail at the airy front bar while 19th Street strolls by.

Three Bells – Excellent

Best News We’ve Heard All Week: V Street Opening For Lunch

vstreetAnd this, in a week that has already had some pretty good news in it AND some great news about lunch in it. So that’s really saying something, even though it’s only Tuesday.

The very first time I sat down at Rich Landau‘s bar, I wanted to know when the place was going to be open for lunch. So much more casual and approachable than Vedge, it just seemed like the kind of place that would be perfect for a long lunch, a couple cocktails, and a few little fried (vegan) snacks from the kitchen. I asked Landau if there were plans for lunch. He said yeah, but not, you know, soon (because the place had pretty much just opened). But starting on Thursday of this week, my wish will come true and V Street will begin serving lunch from 11:30-2pm, Monday through Friday.

And, of course, we have a menu.
