Review: When I knew we'd be travelling through Asheville, aka "the Portland of the South", I knew I wanted to take advantage of the trip and find the best vegan place in town. After doing my homework via Happy Cow, going to Plant was the obvious answer. I was not diappointed. The place was a little fancier than most (in a good way) and the food was very hearty with a professional presentation. My companion was not a vegan, but very much a food connoisseur and he was pleased too. The whole experience was exactly what I'd been craving- a vegan answer to the locally sourced, slightly upscale restaurant.
