Husband and wife, Richard Landau and Kate Jacoby (James Beard Award semifinalists and nominees), opened a new location for their vegan concept that combines core-elements from high-end Philly restaurant Vedge and casual counterpart V Street for their debut in D.C. The restaurant serves dishes like dan dan noodles with roasted mushrooms and a red chile-sesame sauce, Peruvian fries with aji amarillo sauce and flatbreads. They feature cocktails inspired by global flavors, such as the Lokum at the Bazaar (Turkish coffe, bourbon and a Middle Eastern syrup, jallab) and Cruz Control (tepache, horchata and tequila). The restaurant also serves various desserts like soft serve with flavors like halvah with sumac sour cherries or cannoli with pistachio, bitter orange and chocolate magic shell. In addition, there will be other delights including chocolate-stuffed beignets.
