Oh man! I am so sad that this didn't open before I left. I hope some of you are going this week! I am so excited to hear!

It was fantastic!!! I cant recall everything I tried, but it was full of innovate flavors and the quality you'd expect from the crew of Vedge. Saw some of the old servers / bar staff. Considering it was their soft opening, the servers were great. I was a joiner to my friends that were eating, so unfortunately had eaten (but made room!) and had a carrot kimchi dog(?), some sort of flatbread that is highly recommended with a white sauce on it, dan dan noodles, some other "sausage" looking type of thing.

The dessert oh my god the dessert! which will change frequently, the softserve was oohh myyy good. perfect consistency! sesame halva with some crushed cherry thing. then we had a waffle with who knows what deliciousness. oh my god the dessert! thats all i can say about it. one of my favorite meals of all time and i can't wait to go back. i live in NY now, thankfully, otherwise this would be volatile to my budget.

Sorry didnt have time to look at menu and give exact names was in a hurry but i did want to rave about it.

Randi, seriously. Why did you leave again??? The langos was forking ridiculous. Bagel, cream cheese and lox sensation, but way better! The creamy horseradish sauce and the smoked beets are so on point. The salt and pepper green beans are just your average green beans - no biggie there. The harissa cauliflower was delicious, it was served on a pappadum with 3 different kinds of sauces/dips. The Peruvian fries were really, really good although I think I like Vedge's fingerling fries better. The korean tempeh tacos were awesome, and even better when I ate my second taco later that night. The tempeh is battered and fried, served on a corn tortilla with a kimchi slaw on top - so good and less spicy than the Korean seitan taco on Vedge's happy hour menu. Again, I think I like Vedge's version better. Shamefully did not get dessert because I was so full. I will need to go back and try all 3 desserts (they had halva soft serve served with sour cherries over the weekend - what the fizzle!!) and the dan dan noodles and the jerk mushroom dish. Cocktails were really really good but they need to get on the happy hour bandwagon because $12 drinks isn't my style.

Yeah! I can't wait to check out their happy hour. The idea stresses me out a little, though: Happy Hour is only at the bar, which seats (I believe) eight. And it only lasts for one hour (5-6). So, pretty much...eight people can experience happy hour daily?!

weve been a couple times now. I liked everything but thought the pretzels for the price were too steep. last time we went with a big party during HH we sold them out of 2 of the offerings so get there on the early side. they were super nice and hooked us up with some extras free of charge!

Still haven't had the chance to hit up happy hour, but I did have lunch at V Street the other day. The korean fried tempeh reuben was fantastic. I was worried that it would be too spicy with the sriracha sauce and kimchee, but I didn't detect even the tiniest hint of spice. The tempeh was super-crispy and the bread was good. It was a rather small sandwich, but filling. I kind of wished I had fries, but I thought I'd make up for it with dessert. The soft serve flavor didn't interest me, so I went with the churro ice cream sandwich. There is NO WAY to eat that thing as a sandwich. Absolutely impossible. And it's served on a flat wooden board, so there are no edges to catch the melting ice cream that gets everywhere!

Yeah that was really disappointing, that I was in public and couldn't lick the board to get all the ice cream. But it was soooooo delicious. Anything new and noteworthy there? I crave those soft pretzels daily.

Brunch was amazing. Had the Jamaican bbq seitan tacos with hearts of palm slaw, peruvian home fries, biscuits with pho mushrooms and gravy and cannoli soft serve for desert (which tasted more like a pistachio biscotti, but still delicious!!). The brunch menu had a lot of overlap with their lunch menu, but it was all so good, I'm not complaining.
