plant is food

evolving, chef-driven & locally-owned


Plant is an evolving chef-driven vegetable, fruit, and active-foods restaurant in Asheville, NC.  We serve dinner from an open kitchen and bar, with 13 tables, 47 seats, kitchen-side dining, and a seasonal patio.

Jason Sellers, Leslie Armstrong, and Alan Berger opened plant in the summer of 2011.  Since then, plant has achieved a place among peers in the Asheville food scene.  Plant has been voted best vegetarian restaurant in the city, healthiest bite, greenest restaurant, best service, and among the most romantic places to dine.  Plant has garnered attention nationally, making lists from Zagat, Food and Wine, and PETA.  


“Experiencing good food should be transformative, marked by change, and once sensuous and cerebral.”

chef Jason Sellers, from the forthcoming Plant-Bound: Book for the Kitchen Senses


Vegetable cuisine is the precipice where culinary modernity meets the future.
