ABOUT THE SMALL BUSINESS
MORE THAN JUST A RESTAURANT
Opened in 2018, Ruby's Vintage is a restaurant & bar in Harlem, NY, located in the childhood home of legendary actress and activist Ruby Dee. A neighborhood institution, the restaurant has become a gathering place for NYC's cultural influencers, young professionals, and of course, foodies.
BEHIND THE CREATIVE
Even before taking a single photo, Chi-Chi recognized the history and the legacy of the restaurant. She took inspiration from Ruby's Vintage's story and committment to the community it belongs to.
The resulting images and videos highlighted the space and food, while paying homage to the neighborhood and highlighting the owners who make it all happen.
