New Vegan Restaurant in NC

Asheville’s newest all-vegan restaurant, Plant, opened its doors late last month.

Late last month, Asheville, NC welcomed Plant, a new all-vegan restaurant. Former video store owners Alan Berger and Leslie Armstrong teamed up with Jason Sellers, former head chef of veg eatery The Laughing Seed, to prepare vegan meals from locally grown, seasonal, and organic ingredients. The full-service restaurant cooks up tasty dishes like peppercorn-crusted seitan, raw enchiladas, smoked portabello steak, and sweet corn risotto. For Sunday brunch, diners can expect to sample classic tofu scramble, five-grain pancakes, and almond-glazed cinnamon rolls. In an interview with the Asheville Citizen-Times, Armstrong says, “I had always wanted to expose the world to good vegan food and let everyone know that just because it’s plant-based food doesn’t mean it isn’t fabulous.”
