The Village Belle is set in the heart of the Queen Village section of Philadelphia's first neighborhood. The bar, which was built in the early 1900’s, boasts a 26ft solid piece of mahogany, antique lighting and comfortable seating. The dining room compliments the old and the new with rich toned banquettes encasing two cozy dining areas while classic tile and hard wood floors adorn the rest of the space. The room overlooks the neighborhood's lush park situated on the Delaware River. The chef, Louis Campanaro, raised just blocks away on Queen Street, draws inspiration from the bold flavors of the Mediterranean and plans to change his value driven menu seasonally. The GM, Michael Romeo, seasoned in restaurants across the country, brings a casual, service oriented approach to the dining room.
