The Best New Vegan Restaurant in America || Eat Seeker: Fancy Radish

Know for stuffy steakhouses and a dime a dozen fast-casual restaurants, the last restaurant you’d expect to find in Washington, D.C. is the country’s most exciting vegan spot. Chef-owners Richard Landau and Kate Jacoby, are rockstars within the plant-based culinary scene, with a laundry list of hit Philadelphia restaurants like Vedge. After setting their sights outside the city of Brotherly love, the two landed on D.C. as the perfect place for their new laid-back plant-based location. Serving a mix of approachable and fun veggie dishes, like their must-order rutabaga fondue, which astoundingly mimics melted cheese. They also play off different Asian-styles of cuisine, like their mouth-numbing dan dan noodles, which could bring an end to all of D.C.’s partisan issues.
