Welcome to The Lunch Belle, a food website/blog that views the New York City + Los Angeles dining scenes through the lens - and belly - of a highly opinionated, critical, adorably quirky, and culinary-obsessed thirty-something year old.

Just consider me your one-stop NYC - and, most recently, Los Angeles - shop!

NYC & Beyond: venues & event spaces

Whether you're looking for the perfect space to host your wedding, birthday party, bridal shower, company holiday party, or any "just because" celebration, I've come up with a list of tried and true spaces throughout NYC, Long Island and NJ to help you make the best possible choice.  And best of all?  Each venue offers private and/or semi-private space.

If you find this list overwhelming, however, don't fret.  Shoot me an email with a couple of details or ideas about your future event, and I'll help you work through this delirious list of options: Lindsay@TheLunchBelle.com

Check back frequently, as this list will continue to grow.
