Behind Ras Plant Based are the dynamic duo, Chef Romeo and Milka Regalli. Their love affair with culinary arts began in childhood, with Romeo's heart being molded by family matriarchs, and Milka's passion kindled at her mother's establishments. Their commitment reached a pinnacle when they harnessed the power of plant-based cuisine to triumph over a family health crisis. Today, Ras Plant Based is their homage to ancestral Ethiopian recipes, reimagined through a contemporary New York lens. Fueled by past challenges and a relentless pursuit of excellence, they offer an experience where every dish is not just food, but a story.

Our Purpose

Every dish is more than just food — it's a heartfelt embrace, connecting us all through the magic of nature's bounty. With sustainability at our core, we don't just serve meals, we serve experiences that uplift, nurture, and bind communities. Because we believe in the transformative power of plant-based love, one plate at a time.


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.

Our Moral Compass

Hospitality: Crafting moments of warmth and kindness, where every guest and team member feels like they've come home.

Integrity: The unseen compass guiding us even when all eyes are turned away.

Love: In every gesture, every detail, and every moment, we pour our hearts. It's the secret ingredient that binds us to our guests, team, and community. Love isn't just what we feel, it's what we do.

Teamwork: Alone we shine, but together we illuminate the entire horizon.

Respect: A silent oath we uphold - honoring our home, cherishing each other, and valuing the reflection in the mirror. Every gesture is a testament.

Accountability: In our realm, we don't point fingers; we extend hands. Every step, every decision, embraced as our own.

Our Mission

Every plate is a canvas, every flavor a narrative. Beyond serving food, we craft memories. With each bite, feel our dedication to warmth and genuine connection, creating moments that linger long after the meal concludes.
