Pioneers of vegan cuisine, the power couple behind this operation initially made it big at Philly’s Vedge. Set at the base of an urbane building, the industrial-chic space is abuzz with locals, who are all here for their haute approach to vegan cuisine. Having said that, they turn out so much more than just that. Flavorful and satisfying are words that come to mind when sampling razor-thin trumpet mushrooms, which are a clever stand-in for pasta, bathed with a silky broth. Rich and spicy dan dan noodles are then tossed with a tahini-based sauce for a glossy and intensely savory bite.
This kitchen team keeps you on your toes right through dessert—when hearty chickpea-flour donuts are paired with rhubarb- and sour cherry-gazpacho for a delectable last act.
