The Yorkville restaurant will feature an entirely plant-based menu, a collaboration between Chef David Lee and CHG's Culinary Leaders, Chef Michael Steh, and Chef Tyler Shedden. Planta will replace former Pangaea Restaurant at 1221 Bay Street, and will be CHG's sixth restaurant.
The combination of Planta's playful menu, fun relaxed atmosphere and casual dining experience makes CHG's newest restaurant unlike anything Toronto has seen before.
"We've wanted to introduce this type of restaurant and dining experience to Toronto for quite some time now, and are excited to offer innovative plant-based meals inspired by all parts of the world," says Steven Salm, President of Chase Hospitality Group. "The Yorkville neighbourhood could not be a better fit for our vision."
The 100% plant-based, globally inspired menu is crafted with flavourful profile cooking techniques that highlight the ingredients and offers guests a fresh alternative to thinking about food.
Keeping in line with CHG's commitment to sustainability, the thoughtfully developed wine list will be 100% biodynamic and organic, while the beverage list will feature fresh-pressed juice cocktails. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served, and take-out options are offered at all meals.
Planta seats 165, including a 32-seat private dining room. The bright and open space, combined with touches of wood detail, bronze accents, will play off the natural Bay Street light shining through the oversized street-facing windows.
