Philadelphia’s newest vegan restaurant, Vedge, is preparing to open sometime in the coming weeks. Originally scheduled to begin service in late summer, the “vegetable restaurant” has experienced ups and downs in the process of securing permits for its location, but owners Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby told philly.com on Thursday that they are hoping to unveil within a week and a half. They also offered a peek at their full menu earlier this month, showcasing dishes such as banh mi crostini with lemongrass tofu and creamy Sriracha, steak-spice seared tofu with parsnips and chanterelles, wood-grilled maitake mushrooms with leek ash and truffle, and sticky toffee pudding with salted caramel and pumpkin ice cream. Landau and Jacoby have been documenting their pre-opening process on the restaurant’s Twitter feed.
