Luxury Outlook 2023
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
On Instagram, the chef Malcolm Livingston is often seen in Japan, or else he’s in the Bronx, Barbados, or at Art Basel in Miami. There he is on the Rachael Ray Show, or at Instagram HQ posing with his colleagues from Ghetto Gastro, the groundbreaking far-more-than-a-catering company that he co-founded in 2012.
His photos of perfect sweet potato pies and chocolate-coconut cakes— all plant-based and simply but exquisitely decorated—are usually crafted at the Andrew Freedman Home, a landmark building on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx where Ghetto Gastro rents a kitchen and maintains a community garden. The Bronx is Livingston’s home turf, and the borough has remained his beacon during his peripatetic life as a renowned pastry chef.

What Livingston and his colleagues in Ghetto Gastro are trying to do is present delicious, healthy food with a hypercre-ative global perspective and a deep focus on community and culture.
