600 H Street NE
PROJECTED OPENING DATE: Any minute now
Husband and wife, Richard Landau and Kate Jacoby (James Beard Award semifinalists and nominees), will open 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 updated its name from V Street in order to avoid confusion of its placement on H Street, not D.C.’s actual V Street. The owners also said the name V Street was always meant to be a placeholder. The restaurant will serve dishes, like dan dan noodles with roasted mushrooms and a red chile-sesame sauce, Peruvian fries with aji amarillo sauce and flatbreads. They will also 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 will also serve 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.
