The motto for the new vegan PLNT Burger, which opened recently in the Whole Foods in downtown Silver Spring, is “Eat the change you wish to see in the world.” It appears on the T-shirts worn by the fast-casual restaurant’s staff, signage, menu, website and Instagram page.

PLNT Burger is clearly on a mission to help repair the food system and protect the environment by offering burgers constructed from Beyond Meat, a thoughtful plant-based alternative. Patrons are lining up at Whole Foods, eager to consume cheeseburgers, mushroom bacon BBQ burgers, crispy herbed fries and salads tossed with shaved broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage and kale. Oat-milk-based soft serve and shakes in chocolate, strawberry or swirl stem from a PLNT Burger partnership with Dolcezza.

One must dig deeper for two key facts about the fast-casual restaurant:

  1. PLNT Burger is certified kosher.
  2. The co-founder of the vegan burger spot is celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn

PLNT Burger, 240-685-6286, 833 Wayne Ave, Silver Spring, Maryland (inside Whole Foods Market), 11 am–9 pm daily. Kosher.
