V Street is the smaller, more casual sister restaurant to Washington Square West's Vedge. Also a vegan joint, Vedge serves street food style eats inspired by vendors all over the world. Be sure to try the 5 O’Clock Szechuan Soft Pretzels, a riff on the classic Asian steamed buns. The pretzels are made with a Szechuan peppercorn laced dough and and served with a side of spicy ginger mustard. While they may not look like your traditional pretzel, these things are a hot commodity, regularly selling out shortly after they are baked at 5:00 - all the more reason to leave work a few minutes (or hours!) early.
