Located on 850 Commerce Street, Planta, a new vegan restaurant, takes over South Beach.

With stars like Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid frequenting this establishment, this vegan restaurant can satisfy even the most hardcore meat lover.

Originally a Toronto-based restaurant, David Grutman, a Miami nightlife guru, brought the restaurant to South beach with Chef David Lee in the kitchen.

The menu offers light nutritious comfort foods bursting with flavor, accompanied by an airy and colorful atmosphere.

The restaurant aims to create delicious vegan substitutes for popular meat dishes. A favorite on the menu is the coconut ceviche. It is made with raw coconut shreds marinated in lime juice and jalapeno peppers, garnished with pickled cucumbers and coriander. This eatery has also created vegan alternatives to dishes such as the meat lover’s pizza where the mozzarella is substituted with cashew cheese, and mushrooms for the sausage.

While those are popular dishes on the menu, Planta’s other items such as their pasta and vegan sushi should not be overlooked.
