Chase Hospitality Group (CHG) opened their latest restaurant endeavor, Planta, this week!

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served, and take-out options are offered at all meals. Planta seats 165, including a 32-seat private dining room. The bright and open space, combined with touches of wood detail, bronze accents, plays off the natural Bay Street light shining through the oversized street-facing windows.
