Welcome to Fancy Plants

All plants truly are so fancy. Plants are nature’s works of art, with purpose. Here at Fancy Plants Kitchen we introduce the purpose in our works of art.

To intertwine a thread of medicinal qualities through a dining experience with mind bending dishes, is indulging at its fanciest. Allowing your body to enjoy and benefit all at once, well, could there be anything better… We think not. 

Pure plants. Pure wines. Medicinal herbaceous libations. Your body thanks you for spending time with us. And so do we.

Fancy Plants Kitchen is our farm to table vegan restaurant and bar @ 1443 Fullerton Ave in Lincoln Park, Chicago. We invite you to join us to enjoy some expressive and refined vegan cuisine, and let our personable and friendly staff take care of you. We are excited and honored to give you our best example of electrifying modern vegan cuisine.

A Taste of Fancy Plants

Every night we offer a 5-Course ‘Taste of Fancy Plants’ experience for $45. Each month has a theme, with the option to 'choose your own adventure' with other menu selections to customize your experience.  We offer cocktail and wine pairings as well.

About Us


a bowl of food

Fancy Plants Kitchen is a dedicated team of professionals who are intent on creating ever greater experiences in the arena of plant based cooking, and is the creation of chef/owner Kevin Schuder. 

Kevin grew up in the small village of Ephraim Wisconsin, and in 2005 decided to move to San Francisco to train in high end restaurants to be a vegan chef.  Starting at Millennium Restaurant, he helped open 2 wine bars, worked at Waterbar, AQ, Izakaya Yuzuki, and with the venerable Amaryll Schwertener before staking out on his own again with his successful pop-up restaurant Veg388.  He became the executive chef of a large vegan restaurant project, and won a San Francisco Iron Chef. In 2016 he moved to Chicago, started Fancy Plants Catering, in 2019 Fancy Plants Cafe, and now Fancy Plants Kitchen.
