New additions include the bento box with kelp noodle and wakame salad, chef’s maki, chicken fried mushrooms, tofu and ginger soya, and chilled sesame broccoli ($24); the KFB, Korean fried Brussels sprouts with gochujang ($9); and the crispy cauliflower sandwich with buttermilk fried cauliflower, daikon, carrot, and cilantro on challah with a side of tajin fries ($19.95).

"We like to get creative and have fun with the menu, so you’ll see a lot of dishes you’d crave for lunch regularly in a 100 percent, plant-based version," says Benjamin Goldman, Planta's chef de cuisine. "The crispy 'chicken' sandwich is awesome. Planta’s sushi has always been a fan favorite, so for lunch, we created the bento box, which is a perfect combo of our most popular rolls and Asian-influenced dishes."

The restaurant's brunch menu rolled out in April, and owner Grutman (of Groot Hospitality) says it's been a big hit.

"Planta South Beach has had amazing success since it opened this year, and our guests are so loyal they keep coming back for more," says Grutman. "It was always the plan to bring plant-based lunch to South of Fifth, and now we’re making it a reality."
