Is This The Most Exclusive Dining Experience In All Of New York?
New York and fine dining go hand-in-hand. In fact, the city is home to more high-end culinary outposts than perhaps any other place on the planet. But Exclusive Resorts has found a way to tap into that sea of talent while providing a bespoke experience you literally can’t find anywhere else. They’re transporting chefs from Michelin-starred kitchens directly to your own private residence.
The members-only vacation club works with roughly 400 properties across the globe, affording access to fully-furnished luxury apartments at a flat rate of $1,395 per day—regardless of season. The company was started in 2002 with funding from former AOL founder Steve Case, who now serves as its chairman. Think of the service as a premium alternative to VRBO. For example, you can work with their team of concierges to curate private dining experiences at just about any of their locations.
In New York, however, it’s a little more formalized. Exclusive Resorts operate out of Park Avenue Place, just south of Billionaire’s Row in Midtown Manhattan. And it is here that members will get to enjoy the newly launched dining concept, the result of a partnership with a locally based startup known as Resident.
As the name implies, Resident specializes in rendering the white tablecloth treatment within a residential space. Springing up during the pandemic to allow the comfortable trappings of such while maintaining social distance, the company caters to what it calls “a new era of hospitality.”
