Artist Residency for Chefs to Open in Red Hook

RED HOOK — Two city restaurateurs will soon open an "artist residency for chefs" in the neighborhood, a creative space for chefs from around the world to present their work.

Res, located at 372 Columbia St., is geared toward chefs who travel to New York for events but are short on time and money, according to their website.

It will allow them to work "without being rushed or stressed" while staying at the space for free.

Res will be run by Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, the duo behind Brooklyn eateries like Prime Meats and Frankies Spuntino, who announced details of their new project at the second annual Mésamerica Festival in Mexico City, Eater reports.

With a cold kitchen, a hot kitchen and an outdoor fire kitchen, Res will host collaborative dinners, one-off events or installations, according to their website.

Castronovo and Falcinelli did not wish to comment as yet although Eater reports that the space will open in a few weeks.
