A few weeks ago, Matthew Kenney debuted his east coast outpost of Plant Food + Wine in Wynwood inside holistic health center, Sacred Space. The raw and vegan concept – which Kenney has built his reputation for – serves plant-based versions of classic dishes. What has been the response to the food so far? Here are the reviews so far.

The Good: Describing the cuisine as “upscale vegan” writer Sara Liss notes that not all dishes are raw, but they aim to “infuse the dishes” with healthy enzymes. The health kick even makes its way to the desserts, which she says are “righteous-yet-indulgent.” Her final verdict: “inventive vegetarian dishes and classic cocktails in an airy space in Wynwood.” []

The Great: More of a thank you note than a review, Yelper Marina A. says that it is a “magnificent place” and that each dish is the work of a “culinary artist” and that she “love love love it!” [Yelp]

The Pricey: At the Miami New Times, its writer Hannah Sentenac seemed to enjoy everything she ate adding that, “even vegans who doesn't generally like raw food for its one-dimensional qualities will find Plant's cuisine to be hearty and filling.” But she does mention that the cuisine, “doesn't come cheap.” [Miami New Times]

The Praise: OpenTable diners seem to love Plant Food + Wine with plenty of praise throughout the reviews. One diner, who dubs himself a "raw food specialist" even adds that the restaurant, "is fantastic, the food was outstanding delicious and the presentation and service definitely deserves and applause!" And he is an expert, after all. [OpenTable]
