There is something about doing business in New York City that makes you feel that you have really made it. But what if the deal hasn’t quite been closed yet, and you have one last chance to impress your contact? Here are the eight best business lunch spots in NYC, which will help you clinch the deal with ease!
Spice up the business deal by treating your contact to a delicious Indian meal. The restaurant boasts deep, private booths so you can get down to brass tacks without worrying about anyone eavesdropping on your confidential discussions. The cuisine takes in the whole sweep of the Indian subcontinent and is sure to satisfy – although the generous portions and multiple courses might see you fighting the urge for an afternoon nap later on.
A wonderful American and yet still exotic name, just the word ‘Lafayette’ is enough to pique interest, but venturing inside just proves how right you are! A bustling French brasserie, this restaurant will provide you with a leisurely late breakfast, a snappy brunch, or a full – perfectly cooked – evening meal, and is sure to impress your business partner with your acumen at the restaurant picking.
As long as you are not trying to seal the deal with either a committed vegan or easily swayed vegetarian, you can’t go wrong in a New York Steakhouse! As might be surmised from the name, this restaurant is all about the meat, and it arrives on your plate, piled high, accompanied by the perfect sides, and is guaranteed to be juicy, delicious, and perfectly cooked. If you can’t seal the deal after that, you never were going to win them over!
If authentic Japanese sushi and sashimi are your things, then this is the place for you. The restaurant oozes style and it is one of the hot spots at which movers and shakers, and those who want to move into those rarefied heights, are frequently seen, making sure that trendy does not move on with them!
Just like the Benjamin Steakhouse above, sound out your guest for any dietary requirements, and then, if meat is on the menu, bring them to get a BLT Steak meal. The ambiance is solid, welcoming, and worthy, the perfect respite for anyone who struggles to keep up with endlessly changing fashions, and the meals are recognizable, perfectly cooked, and high-quality. So much so that you might need to use your limo service to get yourselves back to the office to sign the paperwork and make it all official! You can retain the services of a limo from your arrival at JFK airport, until your departure from the same, some days later: check out the JFK limo service here.
Fogo de Chao
New York prides itself on its multicultural population and vibrant cuisine scene. Get to grips with it by immersing yourself in South American meat feasts! Waiters prowl constantly, recharging your plate from their heaped platters of steaming hot, cooked meats, and you eat until you cannot eat anymore for a fixed price: great for competitive eaters!
For lighter meals, while the heavy deals are thrashed out, this restaurant delights in an excellent fish and seafood offer, with burgers, sushi, and oysters all sitting side-by-side on the menu. A great place to eat, and a good one to be seen, too, as the restaurant enjoys quiet fame amongst the great and good of the city.
Tommy Bahama Restaurant
Smack in the heart of New York’s busiest shopping area, this restaurant offers great solid food, plenty of healthy options for those who want them, and a light and airy premises in which you can sit in comfort to work out the tricky details of your negotiation.
