To continue our ongoing celebration of women in restaurants, Resy has partnered with BEVERLY’S New York City, a kitchen and specialty homewares market, to create The Women of Food Shop, a curated collection of items made by women-owned businesses. Each item in the collection was selected by BEVERLY’S founder Beverly Nguyen in collaboration with female chefs and restaurateurs across the country.
A portion of proceeds will be donated to The National Women’s Law Center, which fights for gender justice across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls.
About The Women of Food
Welcome to The Women of Food, Resy’s ongoing celebration of women in the restaurant industry. Since 2018, Resy has spearheaded Women of Food initiatives in cities across the globe, with the goal of honoring the myriad women who power the restaurants we love, from Los Angeles to London.
Much has changed in the restaurant world since that inaugural 2018 moment, with massive shifts like the #metoo movement and a life-altering pandemic. But, there’s still so much work to be done when it comes to the gender gap in the restaurant industry. As we look at the state of women in restaurants, some numbers to consider:
About Our Curator
Beverly Nguyen is a fashion stylist and owner of homewares shop BEVERLY’S New York City. Nguyen is a first generation Vietnamese-American and a Southern California native. Her heritage has influenced her entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to create beautiful environments. Nguyen’s grandparents operated a textile mill and founded a general store in Bien Hoa, Vietnam, and her parents established an apparel manufacturing company in California where she spent most of her adolescence surrounded by fashion production and learning how to run a business. Over the past decade, Beverly has worked as a fashion stylist and creative consultant in New York City. She was previously the studio director to celebrity stylist Kate Young, and has held various creative roles within Vogue US, Opening Ceremony, La Garconne and Mociun.
Nguyen’s homeware store and specialty market BEVERLY’S is based on Nguyen’s love of accessible, everyday design. BEVERLY’S houses an assortment of humble, well-crafted home goods for the kitchen and bath. BEVERLY’S first opened in April 2021 at 22 Ludlow Street - a pop-up location at the intersection of the LES and Chinatown - followed by a second location at Rockefeller Center, marking the first store at the historic address to be founded by an Asian-American woman. Now, Nguyen has partnered with Nordstrom to operate a BEVERLY’S shop within the Nordstrom Flagship store on 57th street - which expanded to a new space this Spring.
The National Women’s Law Center fights for gender justice—in the courts, in public policy, and in our society—working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. We use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and to break down the barriers that harm all of us —especially women of color, LGBTQ people, and low-income women and families. For nearly 50 years, we have been on the leading edge of every major legal and policy victory for women.
A portion of all proceeds from The Women of Food Shop will be donated to the National Women’s Law Center.
