The namesake of Regina’s Grocery is a home-cook turn professional cook. Those close to her describe Regina, a Brooklyn native, as one-of-a-kind. From her unique yet trendy look including cat-eye glasses, an all-black wardrobe, and her red hair, to her take it or leave it attitude. Regina’s story begins with the beauty industry – attending cosmetology school and eventually working for Chanel at Bloomingdales for many years. Regina always cooked for family, friends, friends of friends, etc., as cooking is a prominent piece of her Italian and Brooklyn culture; it's how she shows you she cares. This former Studio 54 regular is now sharing her recipes and delicious food with New York City. She will be in the kitchen, and accessible for patrons, giving Regina's Grocery a home-like feel unparalleled to anything else.
Visit Regina's Grocery onsite at SCOPE New York.
