I'm so happy to live in a place that has so many good restaurants. Plant is among my top 5 faves. The food is always excellent, the service is always very good, and the ambience is equally fine. The tamales are wonderful. The desserts are out of this world. I don't know how they make vegan food taste so wonderful.... More

Over the past 20 years, Asheville has become a 'foodie' town. Restaurants and ideas come and go, but there are ~10 'must eat' places to take out-of-town visitors. However, when we go out to eat for a special event or quiet evening out, we often choose PLANT because the food is simply SUPERB! Whether it is the specialty drink menu,... More

This restaurant is a vegetarian paradise. The desserts are healthy too. A little on the high end on pricing but a nice place to enjoy a special night out.

Both were amazing. Second course was the portobello... More
