If you can’t land a reservation at Vedge, one of Philly’s highest rated restaurants, consider dining at V Street, a street food bar created by Vedge chefs Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby. Both Vedge and V Street are vegan restaurants and adored by vegans, vegetarians and carnivores alike. V Street offers flavorful takes on global street food, with plates like Peruvian Fries, Dan Dan Noodles, and Philly Shawarma Tacos. Happy hour is a great time to enjoy this small intimate space and specially priced cocktails and small plates. If you’re lucky, the happy hour menu will include my favorite treat, the Sichuan soft pretzels. Spicy! And ... yummy! Lunch is served from Tuesday to Friday from noon to 3; dinner from Tuesday to Sunday starting at 5 pm, and brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 3. Reservations are recommended.
