Our dinner at Planta South Beach in Miami was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! We ordered the chef’s sampler that came with NINE courses, including a delicious dessert!
Planta is comparable to Café Libre in Cuenca, Ecuador. They’re both fully plant-based vegan restaurants with delicious food, but Café Libre has a much more artistic presentation.
We stayed at the Blue Moon Hotel, which was amazing! Our room was small but very nice and the location was perfect. It was centrally located on Collins Avenue in South Beach only one block from Ocean Drive and the beach.
When we arrived, I asked the concierge if he could recommend some vegan restaurants nearby. He spent quite a bit of time making a list for us and showing us menus on the computer. But none of his recommendations were vegan restaurants! They all had some level of vegan options (one steakhouse offered rice and steamed veggies as the “Vegan Plate”), but we had heard that South Beach was more vegan-friendly than that.
After we went to our room and got settled in, I did some searching on the Internet and found Planta, as well as another vegan restaurant that’s less than 1 block away from our hotel (we’ll eat there in the next video) and one that’s not too far from the hotel (we’ll eat there in the video after next).
I told the front desk about Planta South Beach and left a business card for Full Bloom when we checked out.
