Romeo and Milka Regalli always envisioned creating an Ethiopian culinary experience reminiscent of the meals that they watched their grandparents make- food that was simple yet insanely complex, made with love and bursting with flavor. Ras is their interpretation of recipes handed down through generations, a place where modern meets traditional to create exceptional cuisine. Self-proclaimed foodies Milka and chef Romeo serve up the best plant based Ethiopian dishes through a NY lens. 



To connect communities to living foods by promoting sustainability while nurturing the spirit of our guests and team.


The success of Ras Plant Based depends on our people. Our restaurant can only prosper and provide opportunities for employment and growth when we continually improve ourselves, and the work we do. We recognize however, that success is not measured by sales, guest counts, and numbers alone. We are measured as much by the way in which we achieve our goals, as we are by the actual achievements themselves. We believe that a commitment to uncompromising values and integrity should always guide our decisions and actions as we pursue our goals. Following are the core values that form the foundation of our measurement of success:

  • HOSPITALITY. Treating our guests and team with warmth, kindness and generosity. Our goal is to provide the kind of unique and genuine sort of personal care and attention that our guests tell stories about.

  • INTEGRITY. We never stop trying to do it better, no matter how good we are. We constantly strive to "raise the bar.” And we always do the right thing when even no one is watching.

  • LOVE. We care deeply about people: our guests, our team and our community.

  • TEAMWORK. We know that great achievements are only possible from helping and respecting each other. Our personal achievement is secondary. We work collectively to achieve unified goals.

  • RESPECT. We can only achieve our goal when we respect our home, respect one another and most importantly respecting ourselves.

  • ACCOUNTABILITY. We do what we say we are going to do when we say we are going to do it. We believe in personal accountability and avoid blaming others when things don’t turn out as planned. We never point fingers, we take responsibilities for our actions.


  • Create a memorable one-of-a-kind dining experience.

  • Inspire our community to rethink what plant-based cuisine tastes like.

  • Provide exceptional hospitality in a safe, loving environment for our team
