The cooking strutted past tolerable to remarkable. I had no idea so much flavor could be delivered without butter, cream, milk, eggs, and other kitchen staples. Chef Richard Landau’s staff must include a benevolent gremlin or a fairy godmother who sprinkles magic dust over the pots and the pans. I had trouble understanding how vegan food had advanced this far and this fast without an accompanying outpouring of acclaim.
Washington D.C’s Little Serow, a “transformational”Thai restaurant is ranked number one. Hog & Hominy out of Memphis, Tennessee is number two.
Praise is something that Richard Landau and company should be getting used to. The vegan restaurant ranked number three on Philadelphia magazine’s 50 Best Restaurant list and has been widely praised in all the local reviews.

All meals are better when purposely paired with something delicious to wash them down. On November 7th, Vedge and 12% Imports are teaming up to bring you a vegan food and beer pairing, for $85 per person. If you’ve been to Vedge before, you know they turn simple vegetables into magical, magical dishes. What better way to enjoy each skillfully crafted bite than with a masterfully selected craft beer?

This year marks 100 years since the death of famous Philadelphia architect Frank Furness. Furness’ designs were bold and eccentric during his life, and have since become revered not only in Philadelphia, but wherever his designs were produced. He was greatly influenced by the industrial designers of his day, often combining materials in new ways and designing on a scale meant to dazzle and break with the norm. Other famous architects like Louis Sullivan, who studied under Furness, and Frank Lloyd Wright were strongly influenced by his designs. Many of his important buildings, like the University of Pennsylvania Fisher Library and Drexel’s Paul Peck Center, still stand throughout Philadelphia–some housing popular restaurants.

So here we are–three days into Foobooz Potato Week, and what do we have to show for it?
Plenty. Who has the best poutine in town? We’ve told you. Same with the best places to score the best sweet potato fries. Speaking of sweet potatoes, we’ve discussed whether or not they even qualify as potatoes (culinarily, not taxonomically) and the vote came out overwhelmingly (80-20) in favor of allowing the sweet potato into the pantheon of potato-y greatness, and then told you all the best places to eat sweet potatoes (with a special mention for the sweet potato pâté with grain mustard, jerk cashews and brown bread at Vedge which, seriously, might be one of the single best vegetable dishes I have ever eaten).
Want to know where to get crab fries with actual crab on them? We let you know. What about somewhere to get potato pizza? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. We’ve talked about the crab, corn and potato hash at Devil’s Alley, the Disco Fries at Pub & Kitchen, the guinnea hen leg bolognese over fries at Alla Spina and, really, we’re just getting started. There’s two days left in Potato Week, all counting down to Friday’s list of the Best French Fries in Philadelphia, so we’ve only just begun.
Stay hungry, my friends.
