PLNT Burger, a plant-based, fast casual restaurant concept, is opening its third location in New York City’s Bryant Park. Existing NYC locations include Union Square (139 4th St.) and Nomad (1147 Broadway).
“It’s an honor to bring the best tasting, chef-crafted food in the plant-based space to all our fellow foodies in New York,” Celebrity Chef Spike Mendelsohn said in a company press release. “Following the news of Mayor Adams requiring New York City public schools to serve 100% plant-based lunches on Fridays, we couldn’t have picked a better time to open our third PLNT Burger location as we encourage New Yorkers to ‘eat the change they wish to see in the world.'”
“With chef-crafted, sustainable, and highly craveable food at the forefront of our minds and menus, PLNT Burger is 100 percent aligned with Mayor Adams’ Corporate Challenge to reduce private sector food emissions by 25 percent,” PLNT Burger Co-Founder and CEO Ben Kaplan said in the release. “PLNT Burger is the solution to the Mayor’s call to action which is why we are so excited to open our 3rd location in NYC this June.”
