About Us


Welcome to Wat’s On Your Plate, the first Jamaican and Caribbean restaurant in NYC offering delicious and traditional foods you are sure to love. We are family-owned and operated and proud to serve New York City, the Bronx, and Manhattan with two local restaurants that are conveniently located in these major areas. We aim to provide a variety of delectable dishes and meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We only use the freshest and highest quality ingredients because our customers deserve what is best when it comes to Jamaican-style food! Best of all, each dish comes at an affordable price that allows you to discover amazing Caribbean flavors without breaking the bank!

Our father first opened our restaurant due to his passion for the culinary experience available in Jamaica, and now, we strive to grow the family business together! Besides offering the best Caribbean style dishes, we are excited to soon offer tasty alcoholic beverages once we receive our liquor license! We have also opened a second location dedicated to seafood.

Wat’s On Your Plate has been going strong for more than two years, and we’re excited to see where this restaurant journey leads us! We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day, from 11 am to 11 pm. You can also cater with us and order food through any major delivery service including Uber Eats, Doordash, Postmates, and Grubhub. Browse our menu and get ready for the delicious taste of the Caribbean and Jamaican food, unlike anything you’ve had this north of the islands.

Our island-style food is complete with fish, shrimp, and spices, and we can offer vegetarian options as needed. Come have a drink with us once we receive our liquor license and check back for specials, events, and other fun options. Find the islands on the Island, and let’s make Wat’s On Your Plate the best place to dine in New York. Experience our family, fun personality, and exquisite cuisine now!
