Get the Dish on Local Restaurants

Find out about them on our online foodie show

Local, family-owned restaurants are an important part of the New York food scene. These spots often have delicious options and friendly staff just waiting to welcome new guests. Shouldn't these restaurants receive some recognition? The Empire Plate showcases New York-based family restaurants through our hit show.

Our host and his son were born and raised in Rome, NY. That's why they're dedicated to connecting New York residents with local family-owned restaurants, breweries, wineries and bakeries. When you tune in with us, you'll find new places to visit while enjoying our entertaining adventures.

Our show is fun for all ages. You and your family will love watching us:
