Plant Food + Wine will be opening on Thursday, July 20, 2023 at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, taking over the existing poolside fourth floor café. It will be open to the local LA community as well as Hotel guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 9:00 am to 10:00 pm daily. The outdoor space will serve as the perfect, year-round venue for Matthew Kenney’s plant-based recipes to shine. The sun-drenched, cozier atmosphere will also include clean design elements such as lush plants, white marble, and clean, natural wood finishes.
For the new menu direction, Matthew Kenney says to “expect the menu to be entirely updated from what we have offered in Venice, while still embracing local and seasonal ingredients and applying the multiple techniques we have developed in our test kitchen over recent years. We have developed a large portfolio of breakfast items and are very excited to share them with restaurant patrons and Hotel guests. Lunch will be casual yet vibrant cuisine, and dinner will be more adventurous, paired with a botanical cocktail menu and naturally curated wine list. We intend to offer a fast-paced tasting menu in the evening as well.”
The breakfast menu will feature vegan French toast on a brioche with coconut whip and hibiscus syrup; confit oyster mushrooms with a porcini sunflower pate on country toast with an herb salad; breakfast taquitos with a tofu scramble, black beans and salsa verde; smoked tofu benedict with tomatoes, spinach, English muffin and turmeric hollandaise; and hempseed and chia granola with hibiscus rose yogurt, passionfruit and golden plum; as well as other savoury dishes and a range of fresh juices and smoothies, including the cacao and espresso smoothie, Kombucha Sangria and more.
