Your vegetarian friend has been a good sport and hasn’t complained about eating the singular non-meat dish at every place you’ve been to so far. To say thank you, bring them to Planta. This Yorkville spot serves creative vegan food, like a hot dog made from a carrot, watermelon poke, and arguably the best thing on the menu: a meat-less and cheese-less cheeseburger that’s so good they opened an offshoot called Planta Burger. They also serve Sunday brunch for vegans missing the classics, like pancakes, “lox,” and benedicts. And between the palm-frond wallpaper and actual plants everywhere, you’ll probably assume they have stock in the color green.
