Northern Spy offers dinner reservations each night for parties up to six people. We always leave a portion of the dining room for walk-in customers on a first-come first-served basis.

Brunch and lunch are always walk-in only. Please book reservations online here or by calling the restaurant.

Large Parties

Northern Spy would love to host your next gathering. We accept reservations online for up to 6 people. We can also offer tables for up to 15 people at lunch weekdays and for dinner Monday through Thursday at select times. For parties larger than 15 people, we can also make the restaurant available for a full buy-out with enough advance notice. We regret that we cannot typically accommodate parties larger than 6 people Friday through Sunday. Parties of 8 and larger are asked to participate in a family-style chef's tasting menu for $50/person. Please contact reservations@northernspyfoodco.com for all inquiries relating to the above.

Additionally, we can offer any of the items on our menus in a drop-off catering format for small- to medium-sized events. We can also work with you to customize a menu. Please complete the Inquiry Form below and we will contact you shortly.

Special Events Policy

All reservations for our special event dinners require a credit card to book. Please cancel online or call the restaurant if your plans change. We require at least 24-hours cancellation notice from the start of the event. Cancellations made with less than 24 hours notice may incur a charge of 50% of the price of the meal. No Shows will be charged the full price of the meal.

Northern Spy, a small neighborhood restaurant located in New York City's East Village, was opened in November 2009 by owners Chris Ronis and Christophe Hille. Our menus are built around seasonality and quality. Whenever possible, we use locally grown, raised, caught, and crafted products that are produced by people who do those things with care. Our wide-ranging beer list features some of the most skillful craft brewers in the country. Our wine list, populated with small and mostly natural or biodynamic producers from the US and Europe, features affordable and approachable selections meant for pairing with our food.
