Expansion plans

For its Grand Opening, taking place June 8, PLNT Burger plans to give away free burgers to the celebration’s first 100 guests. The party will last from 11 am to close. In 2022, the company said it aimed to have 30 locations by the end of 2023. 

“It’s an honor to bring the best tasting, chef-crafted food in the plant-based space to all our fellow foodies in New York,” said Chef Spike.

He added, “Following the news of Mayor Adams requiring New York City public schools to serve 100% plant-based lunches on Fridays, we couldn’t have picked a better time to open our 3rd PLNT Burger location as we encourage New Yorkers to ‘Eat the change they wish to see in the world’.”

PLNT Burger in Bryant Park is located at 11 West 42 St. and will be open 7 days a week from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm.
