Foursquare Tips

  • Don't worry, their vegan menu is prepped with non-vegetarians in mind. So don't be afraid of the actually-delicious steak spice tofu w/ parsnips & a walnut picada.
  • This isn't a great vegan restaurant, it's one of Philly's best restaurants, period. Don't sleep on this one.
  • Tip the bartender, he's super cute!
  • Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby's polished Washington Square West gem just so happens to be vegan. Order the portabella carpaccio or funky kimchee stew. Don't forget about the "dirt" list.
  • The best veggie restaurant I've ever been to. And one of the best restaurants in Philly. Get the crispy cauliflower and eggplant braciole
  • Try the Grilled Seitan - Grilled Seitan with black lentils and mushrooms, creamy horseradish, and kohlrabi.
  • Just because you're a meat eater doesn't mean you won't enjoy Vedge.
  • You must try the Elder Sage
  • From Bill Addison's review: "Grill zucchini hollowed out, stuffed with chopped hearts of palm, and glossed with herbaceous green harissa was substantial in a way that any omnivore could appreciate."
  • At this veggie haven, chef Rich Landau simmers three kinds of young turnips and charred broccoli in a kimchee broth and garnishes it with black vinegar cucumbers and menma (preserved bamboo).
  • Killer happy hour. Great price on cocktails and a few food samplers. The desserts are so amazing and rich you'd never know it was vegan. Pricey after Hhour
  • By the sweet-potato pt with grain mustard and toast, proof that smartly handled veggies can hold their own against proteins any day.
  • Dont be put off by the vegan label Vedge has some of the most satisfying food in town. Don't believe us? Try the cauliflower. Seriously.
  • See if you can secure a high-top table so you can dine and observe chef-owner team (and husband-wife) Kate Jacoby and Rich Landau at work.
  • The crispy cauliflower small bite is to die for and the sticky toffee pudding is def the best dessert on the menu, as I have tried them all!
  • Downright maniacally good vegan food. Very upscale. The environment is as un-hippie as can be. The chocolate uber chunk is out of control!
  • "Order dishes such as Hawaiian hearts of palm with lemon grass corn puree or saffron cauliflower soup with fennel pollen and green olive persillade. Make a reservation; this place gets packed."
  • Go for the small dishes. The bigger ones are too heavy (and almost meat-like) and you're much better off just trying out different yummy stuff. Do not miss their fingerling fries!! And the heirlooms!
  • The best restaurant I've ever been too. The seitan is amazing!!!
  • Happy hour is from 5 -7 now! Food is fantastic. Ambiance even better.
