NYCReview

Started by a Top Chef alum, this first NYC location of PLNT Burger is ideal for vegans who don't have a lot of time to eat. They use Beyond Meat, dairy-free cheeses, and Schmidt's potato buns to make their burgers, and they also offer plant-based chicken, chili, and soft serve. The Beyond patties are slightly crispy and have a nice charred and smoky flavor, and, while PLNT Burger's salty herb potato wedges are a little mushy, you'll like them when paired with one of the dipping sauces. (We're partial to the spicy aioli.) The space here is small and feels more fast food than fast casual, so take your order to go and eat at nearby Union Square Park. Like any good chain that doesn't require a lot of real estate, we expect more of these to pop up in the city.
