Private / Social Club

Resident is an early-stage company that hosts communal dinners in private spaces with a rotating chef residency.

Resident event menus are multi-course with beverage pairing, and attract everyone from artists to entrepreneurs, Chefs, tourists, and New Yorkers of all walks of life. Resident event venues may vary dramatically from a townhouse, a residential building still under construction, to a Resident Chef's own home!

Our culinary residency gives up-and-coming chefs the resources and runway for culinary experimentation. We want chefs and event staff to have more than creative freedom - we strive to provide superior compensation and flexibility as well.
