Dine outdoors at Plant City, the world's first vegan food hall. Enjoy combined menus from two restaurants: New Burger American bistro & bar, and Besina Mexican restaurant & bar.

New Burger is a plant-based and vegan American bistro & bar for the modern world. Located on the first floor of Plant City, the comfortable booths and variety of tables wrap around a craft beer bar perfect for viewing sporting events in style. Classic comfort foods are elevated with the freshest ingredients into scratch-made dishes that remain accessible to all ages.

Named for the Spanish words for kiss and kitchen (beso + cocina), Besina offers Mexican-inspired plant-based cuisine crafted with love and intention. Centered around a wrap-around island bar with an extensive trove of tequila and mezcal, the window-lit dining room offers scenic views of the Providence River and skyline.

Plant City is one of the best restaurants in Providence. I highly recommend if you have not tried the food, do so immediately! The customer service from the host, to the waiter, to the food runners are unmatched in my view. Love it here.

Food was good last year when I tried it for the first time; they've made improvements and the food is exceptional now. Outside table was nice and clean. Social distancing was easy. Servers waited for us to put on masks before approaching table. I appreciate that they're taking care of themselves and their patrons.

This is one of my favorite restaurants! Their food is delicious - I HIGHLY recommend the truffle pizza, pop tarts, mac and cheese, and the tofu “chicken” burger. My fiancé and I had our first date there and then recently went back with family to celebrate our engagement. The patio is absolutely lovely and the staff are so kind and attentive. A wonderful place if you’re going out with friends or having a date night. I could not recommend this place more!

Fun place & great location (right across the street from the fabulous pedestrian bridge). The food and service was great. Our waitress was attentive and made great suggestions.
Was disappointed in table location (in an outside tent with no view of the bridge which was the whole point of our journey there). The hostess gave our reserved table to a walk in group.

It was a lovely dinner but our server was switched 1/3 of the way thru & after that it was quite a wait for everything . I half had the feeling our server ran off . It would also be nice to be a tad more generous with those micro cups of chips with the guacamole order . Seriously they are so good & it’s not a free dish so at least fluff it up with more chips !

Plant City is such a pleasurable place to eat! The dishes are fresh, creative and delicious, the staff are engaged and upbeat and there is such positive, healthy vibe about the whole place. We go often! and they are expanding to Aquidneck Island in the next couple of months. Definitely go!

Plant City Providence RI was outstanding in every way. Food is fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented! I had no gastric issues whatsoever following dining here as I have experienced in some other restaurants.

Whether or not you eat plant-based you will be pleasantly surprised. If you do not follow a plant-based only diet lifestyle, you will be impressed and may even start to seriously consider how you may incorporate more plant-based foods and options into your current diet. You will not feel deprived and guaranteed you will feel better if you do! If you are already following a plant-based diet, you will love this restaurant.

We ordered from the New Burger menu and I cannot wait to return to try the Besina menu.

If you're concerned at all about how you can help our environment, incorporating a plant-based diet into your life is truly an individual way you can do your part to significantly positively impact our environment while improving your health and well-being at the same time = Win Win!

I am always amazed by all of my dishes from Plant City. We started with the nachos which is a huge portion loaded with toppings. Definitely enough for the table. My favorite burger is the bbq- it is savory and very filling. The cookies are to die for!

The entire experience was fantastic, and the food was absolutely delicious. We were greeted by friendly people at the check-in station, our outdoor seating was private, separated enough away from others that we felt quite safe, and the ambiance felt like this had been planned all along, not just put together for the pandemic. We had tacos and huevos ranchero, all vegan of course, and everything had a wonderful taste - including the coffee and drinks we got! Highly recommended.

I’m not a vegetarian which I think is helpful to point out. I psyched myself up to get out of my comfort zone and I’m so glad I did. My friend who is vegetarian and I go out to lunch once a month and I was so psyched that there was a place where she didn’t have to get a salad or modify a dish, she could literally eat anything off the menu which was awesome. We sat outside in the tent where the staff was super friendly and following all covid rules. First thing we had was the nachos, they were delicious, nice thick crunchy chips, and some magical sauces drizzled on top. We probably could have split something but decided to go our separate ways...I had the quesadilla and to be completely honest had a lot to take home, which worked out because I dreamt of it and had it for both breakfast and lunch the next day. It was fantastic so so good, not too mushroomy and the sauce was sooooo good(think it was the same sauce on the nachos). My friend had the buffalo chicken pizza, dough was nice and fluffy had plenty of “chicken” (I tried it, first time and it was delicious) it was spicy so you have to like spice for this one but very very good. We are planning our next visit looking forward to the cacio e pepe

Food was a bit too "planty". Nachos were delicious; the soup was great. The main courses were heavy and odd-tasting despite knowing that they were plant based, we understand. Guess just not for us.

I had an outdoor reservation and arrived early so I was offered a table indoors either upstairs or downstairs. We chose upstairs and when we got there, I found that the menu was different than what they have downstairs - upstairs has the Besina and Double Zero menus while downstairs has New Burger and Make Out menus. My wife got the Fajita bowl from Besina and I wanted a (new) burger - since it was not busy, they accommodated my request but you need to keep this in mind when you choose the floor. The food was very good, the staff is courteous and friendly, and the atmosphere is very nice with great views of the city.

Everything was a curated experience from start to finish. The colors and flavors of each dish were incredible. It’s elevated vegetable and plant-based cuisine for any occasion without trying too hard to imitate meat. The service was a 10+ I can’t wait to go back.

We met my cousin and her husband for outdoor dining. As usual, the staff was courteous, attentive and strictly followed pandemic guidelines. Of course the food was fantastic! I had the truffle burger which was perfect. I’ve been here many times and have never been disappointed. Nice to have a relaxing evening in a safe environment with incredible, healthy food.

Nice, spacious outdoor area - table were a bit small but manageable for items. Small menu but perfect & food was awesome, good portions. The nachos & fajita bowl were delicious. Value of the food is worth what you pay - reasonable prices. This was my first time there but not my last even though I am a meat eater. Only one criticism was re: handicap parking. I called ahead to inquire & told no handicap although website says there is handicap parking - think staff should be better informed or signage to clearly direct. Definitely not a deal breaker. Thsnks for a nice evening- will be back.

We really enjoyed the restaurant, ordered the Nachos as a starter, we highly recommend starting with the Nachos as the cheesy sauce, Butternut queso was awesome, main meal was the Cremini Quesadilla and a Fajita Bowl. We sat outside on a beautiful fall day, very enjoyable restaurant. A must go-to-place!

the location is superb. the decor/ambience is peaceful even though it seems always wonderfully busy. the staff are all friendly, talkative if you want, knowledgeable, laid back and overall each and every single person each time is a delight. I am an essential ‘front line’ worker in social services and seeing first hand this virus - it made me paranoid and scared to be in public. PC was my first true sit down outing and I was put at ease immediately. I have been back 4 times in as many weeks. Always bringing someone new along. Thank you all.
