Rich Landau of Vedge and V Street fame touches base with an update on his fast-casual concept that he has plans to open next door to V Street on 19th Street. The former EyeSite will open as Wiz Kid this holiday season. Landau is promising a “chef-driven” fast-casual concept with a focused menu and a “beverage program built to match.”

The menu will include sandwiches like the namesake Wiz Kid, a mushroom steak sandwich topped with long hots and rutabaga wiz and the KFT (Korean fried tempeh). In addition to the sandwiches there will be multiple takes on fries, ice cream and more.

The space will offer counter service and some seating for dining in. The new space will also house most of the kitchen space for V Street. As for V Street’s current open kitchen. That will be reimagined as a noodle bar for the dan dan and vegan ramen obsessed.
