The Plant Cafe Organic Restaurant Review

: Using only locally sourced, natural and organic ingredients, The Plant Café Organic is hardly a low-key hippie haven. Instead, it’s a sleek, well designed loft-like space with lovely views of San Francisco Bay. The restaurant touts recycled hickory tables and beer mugs made from sanded-down wine bottles, while the kitchen relies primarily on solar energy. The ambitious menu full of healthful items (quinoa, tempeh, dinosaur kale salad) alongside haute-ish cuisine (Muscovy duck breast, coconut-crusted halibut, duck-confit pizza) and your basic array of burgers sounds promising on paper, but most dishes fall a little short upon delivery. Some of the fancy desserts feature chocolate made by almost-next-door-neighbor TCHO. The wine list includes selections from all over the globe. Other locations.
