After making raw food respectable at Pure Food and Wine—and a very public split with his partner—Matthew Kenney has embarked on the second chapter in his life as a vegan chef and raw-foodist. It’s headquartered in a loftlike space in Dumbo, where he’s opened the Plant, a retail shop, classroom, and commissary kitchen for the fleet of BlueGreen juice-bar/cafés he plans to infiltrate the tri-state region with. He is starting with the Upper East Side (203 E. 74th St., nr. Third Ave.; 212-744-0940), and on the premises of the Plant itself. Unlike most industrial kitchens, this one is equipped with a coconut station (with a backsplash for errant splinters), a dehydrator room, and a staff proficient at transforming nuts and fruits into macadamia hummus and an utterly credible chocolate pudding.Prix-Fixe Dinner
The plant hosts a weekly dinner every Friday night from 8:30pm-11pm. The five-course dinner with unlimited drinks is $48 and is based on a completely different menu using fresh seasonal ingredients each week.
Reservations are required for Friday dinners
