Overview

ABOUT VEDGE A Vegetable Restaurant by James Beard nominated Chefs Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby, Vedge has offered an exciting dining experience inspired by seasonal vegetables since 2011. Housed in the historic Tiger Building in Center City Philadelphia, the elegant brownstone home has been an intimate setting for inventive vegetable cooking. The Bar has featured natural wines, plenty of craft beers and a creative cocktail list, selected to compliment the wide range of tastes through the dinner and dessert menus. As of May 2020, Vedge is focusing on building a Community Supported Culinary program to offer complete “Picnics for 2” and a la carte items for pick up and serving at home. We also offer an exciting Community Supported Bar program featuring natural wines from our cellar. Please follow our Instagram and Facebook accounts for updates and menu postings. ABOUT THE OWNERS Husband/Wife team Richard Landau and Kate Jacoby are the Chefs/Owners of Philadelphia's renowned vegetable restaurant, Vedge. In recent years, they have grown their restaurant group to include their street food bar, V Street, as well as their latest effort, Fancy Radish, in Washington DC. Chef Rich Landau, a pioneer of the modern plant based dining experience, opened his first restaurant, Horizons, in 1994. His mission: to demonstrate the creativity and satisfaction of vegetable cuisine. Through the many years in the restaurant industry, teaching and consulting, and media appearances including winning Food Network’s Chopped, Landau has used the carnivore’s palate he grew up with to translate vegan cuisine to a broader audience. In 2009 Landau and Jacoby cooked the first Vegan meal ever served at the James Beard House in Manhattan. In 2011 they opened “Vedge” in an elegant Center city Philadelphia brownstone to national acclaim. In 2016 Vedge was awarded a “4 bell” review by Philadelphia Inquirer restaurant critic Craig Laban, the highest possible rating for a restaurant. Landau has co-authored four cookbooks, including the most recent “Vedge: 100 Plates Large and Small that Redefine Vegetable Cooking,” and he has been a finalist multiple times for the James Beard Foundation's Best Chef Mid Atlantic as well as twice being named “Best chef in Philadelphia” by Philadelphia Magazine. Chef Kate Jacoby studied French and Sociology at Georgetown. In 2001, she switched gears to join Landau at Horizons, the restaurant she had already grown to know and love as a customer. Her work in the kitchen beside Landau helped hone her pastry skills and shaped her approach to desserts. A James Beard Nominated Pastry Chef and a Certified Sommelier, her recent focus also includes overseeing the Beverage Program at all their restaurants and directing expansion for the group. Landau and Jacoby are both native Philadelphians who take pride in helping shape the culinary landscape in Philadelphia and who are committed to further raising the bar for vegetable cuisine across the country. When not in the kitchen, they love to travel with their son Rio, always on the hunt for their next great food experience. While we have some signature dishes, the menus change throughout the year with the seasons. The dinner menu features The Vedge Bar (cold dishes and vegetable charcuterie to get started), The Dirt List (medium plates of single seasonal vegetables), and The Grill (richer, more composed plates). The Dessert and Happy Hour menus share the same attention to seasonal ingredients, and the beverage menus feature natural wines from about 70 different producers, craft beers and a creative cocktail list. We are happy to accommodate most dietary restrictions, and we greatly appreciate any advance notice.
