Le plat

The idicated translation is "dish."  In English, a dish can either be a plate on which food is placed or it can mean an entree.  I suspect that the meaning of "plat" is the physical plate on which food is served.  Can you verify?

Le plat has more meanings that just a plate on which food is served, which would usually be translated as l'assiette. Therefore, it is often used as "course" of a meal (le premier plat, le plat principal, etc.) or simply a "dish" (the food, not the plate). A good online dictionary will have more information.
