De Buena Planta
De Buena Planta, a plant-based Mexican restaurant from Abbot Kinney, now has a second location in Silver Lake. It’s located in a huge 5,000 square foot space on Sunset Blvd. (it’s in that little strip mall between Same Same Thai and Ceci’s Gastronomia) and filled with a tiki bar, tropical plants, and colorful patio furniture. Respectfully, it feels nothing like the Eastside— a cross between a Malibu Barbie dreamhouse and the set from Jurassic Park: greenery everywhere you look, people are doing shots of rum in the corner, and yes, there’s enough room for you and everyone you know.
