Vedge Restaurant Review

: For an upscale feast sans meat, head to Vedge, the globally-inspired all-vegetable eatery from husband/wife team Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby. Attractively composed plates pack a flavor wallop and will make you rethink certain vegetables; the fancy radishes, served roasted, raw and pickled, are just one example. Dishes such as roasted golden beets with smoked tofu, capers and avocado showcase the chef's commitment to melding color, texture and flavor, and there's a daily "dirt list" of seasonal menu items created from products harvested at local farms. Innovative cocktails mixed with house-made syrups and bitters as well as a fine boutique and craft wine and beer list round out the Vedge experience. For dessert, we suggest the sticky toffee pudding with brown sugar date cake and smoked pecan ice cream. Happy hour, offered at the bar and adjoining lounge from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, offers one of the city's better values: $6 cocktails and wines by the glass, $4 beers and $4 small plates, including a Korean seitan taco.

Amazing Restaurant

Vedge is an amazing restaurant. The cocktails are unique and delicious, the food preparations unique and tasty, and the desserts are to die for. I have dined here a dozen or more times over the past two years and they are consistently excellent. I am not a vegan and despite that I love this place and my meat eating buddies felt the same way after they tried it. Try this restaurant and I am sure you will be amazed at what a talented chef and team can do with vegetables and talent!
