Vedge, the new Philadelphia restaurant owned by Chef Richard Landau and Chef Kate Jacoby, is simply a restaurant that knows a thing or two about fine vegan cuisine. Landau and Jacoby’s former restaurant, Horizons, set the bar for top-notch vegan fare but closed in July. A fixture on the veg scene in Philadelphia for years, the closing left many with baited breath and empty stomachs.

Ecorazzi was invited to Vedge’s Opening Party  week and it did not disappoint.

Located in historic Center City, Vedge is officially on the beaten path and easily accessible. The restaurant interior is stunning: a marble bar offering sage and minty cocktails, dining rooms with arched doorways, ambient lighting, and antique windows. It all makes you feel like you just walked into your very own chic, but cozy, brownstone…. at dinner-time.

Whether passed on trays or located at the Vegetable Bar, the samplings were abundant and varied. The gold beets, maitake, mini tacos, and caponata dishes are all delectable and highly recommended. Much to my delight, the Vedge servers encouraged me to sample the sunchokes (who knew these root-looking things were so good?!). Although full by dessert time, the peanut butter cookies and cheesecake proved irresistible… moist, flavorful and MUCH better than what Grandma used to make (using all those off-limit, animal ingredients).

Yummy food, friendly staff, and killer ambiance. Philadelphia, meet your “Home – Sweet- Vedge Home”.

Vedge is officially open as of Friday, November 18th and is now accepting reservations. Check out some additional delicious photo below.
