The famed spaces that build up The Standard would be nothing without the diverse, eccentric faces that fill them. Namely, our awe-inspiring employees from all corners of the world. So while we see our current administration threatening immigrant safety and wellbeing, we’ve decided to take the fight to the dinner table with our Creative Director of Food and Culture, Angela Dimayuga, at the helm. Because we’re a family, and families stick up for each other.
For the next iteration of Chefs Stand Up, our dinner series to benefit the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project, we've teamed up with DeVonn Francis, chef and founder of Yardy. His food-focused events company based in New York uses Caribbean and coastal food as a medium for dialogue around identity, celebration, and sovereignty. For Francis' dinner, he drew inspiration from the Caribbean cultures of Bladimil Acosta, our Line Cook at Café Standard from Haena San Cristobal, Dominican Republic, and Youdelaine Dorcine, our Family Meal Cook at The Standard, East Village from Cap Haitian, Haiti.
