When you first hear the term “vegan gastropub,” it doesn’t exactly click. But when you get to The Beer Plant, it all makes sense, and you realize the people that opened this place might be geniuses. As mainstream as vegan food has become, you still typically don’t associate it with semi-upscale restaurants - especially ones with extensive craft beer/wine/cocktail selections. But that’s exactly what The Beer Plant is. Located (admittedly a bit strangely) over in Tarrytown, you’d never guess this place was vegan until you saw “beet bacon” on the menu. It’s an attractive space that would work well for an early-in-the-game date or a casual dinner with friends, and we’ve enjoyed everything we’ve eaten here. (P.S. The beet bacon is pretty damn tasty.)
