When outdoor dining took on a new life last summer, many restaurant and hospitality companies had to get creative. But Resident, a startup that hosts dinners on balconies and rooftops of luxury apartments, was already ahead of the game. This past fall, they launched a socially distant supper club on the balcony of the Financial District’s landmarked Broad Exchange Building, including a rotating chef residency with newcomers who have experience at Michelin-starred restaurants. The supper club is now back, featuring a Venezuelan-inspired tasting menu from Chef Luis Herrera, redefined soul food from Chef Sakari Smithwick, a Filipino-inspired meal from Chef Harold Villarosa, and much more.

When the supper club launched in November, Chef Allyx Seemann, who worked at Jean-Georges, hosted a seasonal tasting menu on the 2,838-square-foot balcony of one of the building’s penthouse apartments. The location has not changed, and the outdoor space (which is larger than the apartment itself!) can seat between 30 and 40 people. Resident will continue adhering to the safety standards set forth by the CDC, WHO, and the City of New York.

When the supper club kicks off this Friday, June 11th, the Venezuelan-inspired tasting menu and wine pairing will be prepared by Chef Luis Herrera, who has worked everywhere from Caracas Arepas Bar in Rockaway Beach to acclaimed restaurants like Cosme and Blanca (2 Michelin Stars).

Dinners are currently scheduled on various evenings from 7 – 10 p.m. through July 31st. Reservations can be made for up to 10 people; tickets cost $195 each. You can view the schedule and book your table here.

Once the largest office building in New York when it was built in 1902, the Broad Exchange Building at 25 Broad Street was converted into a residential building in 1997. When it held office space, the building was considered one of the most sought-after addresses for Wall Street due to its proximity to the New York Stock Exchange. The Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the building as an individual landmark in 2000. Sales launched in April 2019 for its 307 apartments, including four penthouses with private outdoor terraces, ranging from approximately 410 square feet to 3,000 square feet, and private elevator access.
