I got the lasagna and my husband got the hummus. Both were delicious, innovative, creatively made, fresh and we felt super healthy and good when we left. If you are vegan, this is the place for you!

This restaurant is amazing. It can be difficult to find vegetarian or vegan food that is exciting, complex, and so very delicious. Thank you Plant for making it happen.

Yes. Risotto is usually a safe bet. I'm a vegetarian who absolutely hates tempeh but the walnut crusted dish is delicious. Your wife is lucky to be married to a vegetolerant guy like you!
