Plum Bistro is a pleasantly upscale, 100 percent vegan restaurant. Even for a lifelong vegetarian, a visit to Plum can feel like a taste-test in a laboratory on the cutting edge of vegan science, but the kitchen’s experiments are successful. The sloppy joe–style quinoa sliders and the Spicy Mac ’n’ Yease are standouts. Portions seem determined to destroy the myth that vegan food can’t be filling.
