When taking out clients on a business lunch, especially in a city like New York, it pays to give them a unique dining experience. One that they may not have had with other businessmen/women from other companies. Add to that, make it a luxurious meal too! And a great place for such is Augustine over at Wall Street. Firstly, the place is probably already near where you work, so you and your clients don't have to endure the brutal Manhattan traffic. Secondly, this high-class French restaurant looks out of this world, or at least, out of this century. It sports a classic vintage appeal that will likely impress your clients even more!
when you think of New York food, you probably only think of either Italian, Mexican, or Chinese cuisines. And it's not your fault either! Those communities do have the biggest presence here in the "Big Apple" and their food are all tasty! However, an underrated cuisine that's very New York is Greek. Oftentimes, it's this rich Mediterranean cuisine that many prominent executives from all around the world would want to have, even in New York. So why not take your client to Avra Estiatorio? It's refined space tha serves authentic Greek dishes. Simple, strong, and truly impressive!

Of course, not all clients are the same. Many might appreciate going all out, while some would prefer a more intimate setting when talking business. And in a busy city like New York, such spots aren't that easy to find. But when you do, make sure to take your client with you too! One such place is The Duitch over at 131 Sullivan street. Not only does it have a sumptuous menu of delectable chicken and seafood dishes, it's also a fairly quiet establishment where you can be secure that no one from another company is snooping at your business! In this town, that's very important!
