Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby are still in the throes of getting Vedge ready for its anxiously anticipated opening. Another two or three weeks is the word. But to appease those curious about the restaurant’s veggie charcuterie, portobello carpaccio and other plant-based creations, Grub got its hands of the opening menus. In contrast to the dining format embraced by Vedge’s precursor, Horizons, which featured a menu structured in a standard appetizer-entree-dessert scheme, Landau and Jacoby’s new venture will offer a small plates bill of fare. “For the table” dishes, which Landau describes as “little nibble plates of olives, housemade pickles and the such,” and a “dirt list,” a selection of fresh picked vegetables from organic farms in Lancaster County that the restaurant works with, will also be featured. Oh, and of course, there’s plenty of dessert and cocktail options available, too. Take a peek at the full menus straight ahead.
