Atlas District will have to wait until the new year to sample vegan power couple Richard Landau’s and Kate Jacoby’s plant-based cooking.

Philadelphia’s global food bar V Street, destined for the Apollo development on H Street NE, is now slated to debut in February, according to a new Craig’s List job posting pointed out by District Cuisine.

Landau and Jacoby, the driving forces behind award-winning Vedge restaurant in Philadelphia, told Eater they may also ship down fast-casual sandwich sibling Wiz Kid.

Landau, a semi-finalist in the Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic category at last year’s James Beard Foundation Awards, told Eater its dan dan noodles — featuring five spice mushrooms, zucchini, and red chile-sesame sauce — is a “destination dish.” D.C.’s 65-seat V Street will have an expanded noodle bar section.

Meanwhile, there’s more fast-casual ETA news to report in the neighborhood. Local chain Buredo is planning on opening a new location right across the street (625 H Street NE) before the end of the year. A new NoMa shop (111 K Street NE) should arrive by February 2018, the brand tells Eater.
