Resident is a culinary platform that connects you with the face behind your food. Each of our events is a ‘chef’s table’-style dining experience where the chef designs and executes their own menu, and personally introduces each course.
Rather than a traditional restaurant, we host our events in luxury residential spaces around NYC. Current venues range from a penthouse in the Financial District to a lounge in Midtown West. The exact address of each dinner is shared after ticket purchase.
Yes! You can book us for team dinners, holiday parties, board lunches, celebrations, and small-scale weddings.
Yes! In accordance with New York City's "Key to NYC" vaccination mandate, please note that all guests are required to show proof of vaccination upon arrival. We also require guests to wear a face-covering whenever not seated at their table (masks may be provided upon request!)
Each dinner is a 5+ course tasting menu with wine pairing and gratuity. Tax is billed separately.
Yes, one of our sommeliers expertly pairs each dish and shares tasting notes with the group.
Our ticketed events range from 20-40 guests.
Resident dinners are designed to be intimate and have limited availability. We are able to process full refunds 14 days before your event - and can offer a gift card for a date change within 14 to 7 days of notice. Within one week of your event, we are unable to accommodate cancellation requests unless there is a 'force majeure', such as restrictions set forth by local governments.
All guests are seated only with members of their own party at socially distanttables. If you’d like to be seated with another party, make a note with your reservation or shoot us an email.
Select events will have outdoor seating, weather permitting.
Each Resident meal is designed entirely by one of our Michelin-trained chefs. With chefs specializing in New-American, Chinese, Filipino, French, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Mexican, Nordic, Peruvian, and Venezuelan cuisines (and more!), you can expect something exciting and delicious, each evening. Learn more about our chefs here.
Each chef’s menu changes on an event-by-event basis. Get a sneak preview of the menu by clicking on the purchase link for the event you're interested in attending (menus are added at least 3 weeks ahead of each dinner).
Simply note them when you book your tickets and our chef will ensure your needs are met. If it is less than 72 hours from event time, please still communicate your allergies although alternate dishes cannot be guaranteed within this window.
Kindly alert our team at booking and we'll be sure to have non-alcoholic beverages on hand for the evening.

Our dress code is smart casual.
While we'd love to meet your pup, we can't allow dogs at our events due to restrictions in the residential buildings in which we operate. We do make exceptions for registered service animals!
We don't offer parking. If you need help find a space near our venue, email us and we'll do our best to help.
