PLNT Burger is a new plant-based restaurant opening inside of the Whole Foods in Silver Spring (833 Wayne Ave). As the Chef of PLNT Burger, Spike Mendelsohn says, “Sinking your teeth into a decadent burger has the power to nourish and revitalize the human spirit.”
This restaurant did not fall short of its goal of serving great food with the environment in mind. The 100% plant-based menu is full of flavor and includes a span of four burgers all equiped with beyond meat– a soy-free, full flavored beef alternative.
From their oat milk based soft- serve to their version of a blooming onion (called bloomies), the restaurant is one of the first like it on the east- coast, meshing the fast-casual atmosphere with the new wave of eating plant based.
