V Street is a vegan street-food restaurant from the owners of famed Philadelphia restaurant, Vedge. At V Street, Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby recreate casual and affordable small plates inspired by dishes the couple had during their travels. The concise plant-based menu is an exploration of international flavors. Start with snacks like crispy Peruvian fries dressed with aji amarillo, cilantro, dried olive and peanuts and continue with tacos, noodles and grilled za’atar corn, smoked beet langos, and harissa glazed tofu. To finish, try the rotating selection of vegan soft serve and sip on cocktails infused with umeboshi, horchata and Turkish coffee. The sleek concrete bar towards the front pours nine craft beers, seven wines available by the glass or bottle, and inventive non-alcoholic refreshments including the La Brea tar pit, a charcoal infused cucumber-basil limeade. V Street’s cool and contemporary 1,000-square-foot space in Rittenhouse Row charms with white-washed brick walls, chunky wood tables, exposed Edison bulbs and a colorful graffitied wall. The casual no-reservations restaurant is a hot spot for spontaneous drinks and small plates.
