Plant-based restaurant company Planta has announced the opening of a new restaurant concept, Planta Cocina, in Los Angeles, California, US.

The new restaurant is part of three locations the company plans to open in the region.

Located in the heart of Marina Del Rey, the first restaurant is slated to open this year, with the other two locations in Brentwood and West Hollywood to follow.

Planta founder and CEO Steven Salm said: “We are constantly working to raise the bar for plant-based hospitality and are committed to delighting guests with our thoughtful and adventurous dining experience.

“This location is evolutionary for Planta and we wanted to bring something fresh to the West Coast. Our Cocina adaptation is unabashed and flavourful, so we’re excited to join the mecca of wellness and level up what plant-powered food looks, tastes and feels like for Angelenos.”

Covering an area of 5,000ft², Planta Cocina will offer its guests an array of menu items from Latin-inspired menus such as Spicy Tuna Tacos, Croquetas and Coconut Ceviche.

Planta executive chef and co-founder David Lee said: “While we have some classic categories and dishes, such as our sushi rolls and udon noodles, there are a handful of new, Latin-inspired dishes to this concept.

“We also introduced a ‘Robata’ section to this menu, which is a Japanese fireside cooking method.”

The opening of Planta Cocina is part of the company’s West Coast expansion, which aims to cater to a wider audience of wellness enthusiasts seeking innovative plant-based cuisine.
