Congratulations to local vegan favorite restaurants Plant and Rosetta’s Kitchen for their recognition in USA Today! Both restaurants were listed in the Top 20 Vegan Restaurants in the Southeast! (We tend to think in the world.)

About Rosetta’s, USA Today raves:

“Rosetta’s Kitchen has been serving vegan soul food since 2002. It’s a sunny, cheerful restaurant in downtown Asheville, a city that’s among the most vegan-friendly spots in the South. At Rosetta’s Kitchen, you can find mouthwatering dishes, such as a vegan queso basket, a coconut curry plate, and a classic vegan grilled cheese sandwich.

Their Family Favorite dish is a peanut butter-baked organic tofu, sauteed kale, and smashed potatoes and gravy.”

Describing Plant, USA Today beams:

“As a chef-driven, locally-owned fine dining vegan restaurant, Plant has been leading the way with its plant-based cuisine since it opened in 2011. Located in Asheville, it serves a wide variety of delicious dishes, biodynamic vegan wines, and fun craft beers.

The modern interior seems to be the perfect setting to enjoy dishes that include ravioli, grilled beets, tempeh chile con queso, and raw lasagna. Through reservations, the restaurant also offers a chef’s tasting dining experience with a five-course chef’s tasting menu and optional wine and cocktail pairings.”
