(LA Trend) — Fine dining doesn’t always have to be about decadent dishes made for only the most carnivorous.
Plant Food + Wine, featuring cuisine created by plant-based chef and lifestyle guru Matthew Kenney, is the perfect marriage of a gorgeous restaurant atmosphere and divine vegan fare. Based in Venice, Plant Food + Wine has a seasonally crafted menu of exquisite plant-based meals made from locally-sourced ingredients, with soy-free, nut-free, and gluten-free options available.
Their delectable dinner lineup consists of such dishes as Avocado Tikka, Mushroom Carpaccio, Kimchi Dumplings, Casarecce Pasta, and Mushroom Schnitzel, among others, as well as a dessert menu featuring Coconut Cream Pie, Chocolate Caramel Crunch, and Triple Berry Frangipane Bake.
But if a healthy hearty brunch is more of your thing, then Plant Food + Wine has you covered there, as well. Their brunch spread includes Avocado Toast, Hazelnut Waffles, Cashew Raclette, Almond & Cacao Nib Granola, Kimchi Scramble, Cacio e Pepe, and more.
And don’t forget about Plant Food + Wine’s impressive wine list of organic and biodynamic varietals, including wines from Juve & Camps Brut, Chateau Pradeaux, Domaine Mittnacht Feres, Finca Torremilanos “Montecastrillo”, and many other wineries. In addition to their wines, they also have plenty of beer on tap, exclusive cocktails (their Ginger Margarita is especially worth trying), and hot tea and coffee at the ready.
Of course, because Plant Food + Wine’s menu is seasonal, expect new surprises with each visit.
Located just blocks from Venice Beach boardwalk, Plant Food + Wine delivers more than just heavenly food and libations—they also provide a cozy dining atmosphere that perfectly compliments the unique menu. Their outdoor patio brings to mind the charming backyard dinner parties that can only be experienced in sunny Southern California, and is complete with olive trees and blossoming greenery. Plant Food + Wine also has a private dining and wine room to allow for more intimate gatherings.
