|V Street will reportedly open in the Apollo building at 6th and H NE.|
In more great food news for H Street, the owners of Philadelphia's V Street & Vedge plan to open their first DC restaurant this year.
The Washington Post and other outlets are reporting that all-vegan "street food bar" V Street will open later this year in the Apollo apartment building at 600 H Street NE. V Street in Philadelphia serves dishes such as harissa glazed tofu, chilled kung pao noodles, and Korean fried tempeh tacos. The drink menu includes beers from around the U.S., wine, and a cocktail list. They could replicate this 1-to-1 in the DC location and I think they'd be successful.
DC already has an all vegan Philadelphia-based restaurant in Hip City Veg. We certainly welcome another, especially to Northeast. Very, very cool news. And H Street is currently home to all-vegan Fare Well; and vegan-friendly restaurants &pizza, Bab Korean, Pow Pow, Sticky Rice, and others. If anyone else wants to join, come on down (cough, cough, Veggie Grill).
