Back in January we told you that Planta, an upscale plant-based restaurant featuring a menu by Chef David Lee, will be coming to 4910 Elm St at Bethesda Row, in the location formerly occupied by Cafe Deluxe (Cafe Deluxe closed permanently back in March of last year).
In July Planta let us now that they were aiming for a fall opening after originally hoping to open in the summer.
The restaurant will have its ABS hearing tomorrow at 1:30pm, which will allow it to serve liquor, beer and wine if approved. Another step closer to opening at some point this fall (no exact date has been provided).
Planta was founded in 2016 and currently has several locations in Florida, New York, and Toronto.
The Bethesda Row location will seat approximately 140 people inside, as well as an additional 50 people on an outdoor patio, per the restaurant’s January press release.
Menu items include various ceviche dishes, plant-based sushi, Baja Mushroom Tacos, Poke Bowls, dumplings, pizzas, a selection of burgers, wraps and pastas, and more.
