2009_07_plantsmall.jpgAn architecture publication raves about Cass Calder Smith's ground-breaking eco-friendly design of the Embarcadero's Plant Cafe, calling the restaurant one of the most sustainably designed eateries in the city, if not the country. According to Plant's owner, the buzz is mounting too: “A lot of restaurants start out quite busy, with the hype, and they continue that way if they’re really hot, or they start to peter out ... We had the exact opposite experience. Nobody knew who we were, and slowly they started to hear about us until we were jammed.” [Architecture News]
