It's a bold move to take a sandwich defined by chorizo and veganize it (without the use of soyrizo or anything else that mimics meat) — but it's exactly the sort of confidence we've come to expect from Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby, owners of innovative Vedge.
At V Street, which hopes to open in just a couple of weeks, the South American staple sandwich inspires a huarache layered with black lentils, smoked carrot, and chimichurri. And you'll be able to enjoy it alongside dishes that pull influence from all over, including Indian, Chinese, Korean, and even Eastern European cuisines. (Langos, a type of Hungarian frybread, is topped with smoked beets, dill, and sauerkraut remoulade on the V Street menu.)
Check out the full menu below, which includes a really compelling drink selection. Jacoby says they'll be serving dinner nightly starting at 5 p.m., and won't be taking reservations.
V Street, 126 South 19th Street, 215-320-7500; opening soon.
