TORONTO — Chase Hospitality Group (CHG), in partnership with Nota Bene owner chef David Lee, will open Planta — an entirely plant-based restaurant — in early September 2016.
Located in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood, Plant’s globally inspired 100 per cent plant-based menu is a collaboration between Lee and CHG’s culinary leaders, chef Michael Steh, and chef Tyler Shedden, and offers guests a fresh alternative to thinking about food.
“We’ve wanted to introduce this type of restaurant and dining experience to Toronto for quite some time and are excited to offer innovative plant-based meals inspired by all parts of the world,” says Steven Salm, president of Chase Hospitality Group. “The Yorkville neighbourhood could not be a better fit for our vision.”
Keeping in line with CHG’s commitment to sustainability, the wine list will be 100 per cent biodynamic (a form of alternative agriculture very similar to organic farming) and organic, while the beverage list will feature fresh-pressed juice cocktails. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served, and take-out options will be offered at all meals.
Planta will seat 165, including a 32-seat private dining room. The bright and open space, combined with touches of wood detail, bronze accents, will play off the natural Bay Street light shining through the oversized street-facing windows.
