It is absolutely beyond me how anyone could give Plant anything less than 5 stars. I was in line the day they opened and haven't stopped eating here ever since. Each experience at Plant becomes one of those meals where every bite prompts a wide-eyed, awestruck "mmmmmmm!!!" The food is creative, lively, gorgeous and delicious... although sometimes slow to come out, but that is quickly forgotten at the first bite. I've been vegan for years and Plant is up to par with some of the best veg food I've ever had... from New York to Portland to LA and all over! Although the hike in their prices and the loss of lunch service has kept me from dining here as much as I'd like, a 20-something's budget makes this place an occasional treat well worth every penny. Try the seitan and waffles at Sunday brunch. Better than any chicken and waffles that have ever existed.
