Duchess Digest: The Haute Spot for Lunch

By Jill Brown

Get Your Haute Lunch Ladies!

Are you a professional woman wondering where to get your haute lunch from today? Look no further then the fabulous new online destination, The Haute Lunch Bag (www.thehautelunchbag.com). It’s part social media, part foodie and 100% fabulous – a new social networking site. A place for fellow foodies to get deals, discounts and share their ratings, favorites and suggestions in the local area for the best food in the city. And the best part? A portion of the proceeds when you eat at a participating “Haute Lunch Bag” dining establishment goes to the Los Angeles Food Bank.

I was fortunate enough to meet up with the founder of The Haute Lunch Bag, Shannon Yamasaki a few weeks ago at a charity event to talk about the business. I asked her to share more about what Haute Lunch Bag is and does.

Shannon explained that, “The Haute Lunch Bag is the in site on the female appetite. It’s a girl’s must-have resource to search for exclusive lunch specials to best restaurants in town. They can explore amazing eateries, find their friends, share their favorite places, read reviews from friends they trust.”

In essence, The Haute Lunch Bag is a location based social network that helps members explore new restaurants, find their friends, share their favorite places, and discover exclusive lunch specials, catered to the female appetite.  Members are awarded points for loyalty activities, like “checking in” at restaurants, signing up friends, and writing reviews, all for the chance to win amazing rewards, including fabulous designer handbags!

Another great perk as I mentioned is the charitable aspect as well. As Shannon said, “I am pleased to announce that I’ll be donating a portion of my revenue to the L.A. Regional Food bank, so members can experience the positive effect in helping to feed the near 1 million men, women, and children facing hunger in our local community.”

It’s the perfect fusion of eating well and giving to those in need. I’m already signed up as a member, so make sure you are too. It’s simple and free, just sign up at www.thehautelunchbag.com and get in the know. ‘Tis the season for eating well and giving back and you’re sure to experience both in equal measure with The Haute Lunch Bag!
