Plant Food and Wine Is Matthew Kenney's Slick New Vegan Outpost on Abbot Kinney

New, 1 comment

Venice plant-eaters have a new destination.

Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

Matthew Kenney’s anticipated Plant Food and Wine has arrived in Venice, bringing with it a healthy sensibility and vegan menu, with a kitchen helmed by chef Scott Winegard. Lunches and dinners there will contain many cooked foods, though this is a place for herbivore fans of Kenney's former raw food hotspots to dine equally well, enjoying large and small plate dishes in a comfortable Abbot Kinney setting, complete with $75 tasting menus.

The 65-seat Plant Food and Wine, housed in the former AXE space, is a sleek as they come, relying on oak wood floors, stone detailing, and a canopy of fig trees on the reasonably-sized patio. Industrial touches round out the clean aesthetic, which is buoyed by lots of white paint and marble.

Plant Food and Wine is open daily, with weekday hours from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday/Sunday hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
