Power Lunch



Working in the heart of New York City, we are always looking for our go-to spot for a power lunch. These days, they’re not the types of spots you are going to find steak and potatoes. We love local, seasonal fare that will leave us feeling energized and inspired.

ABC Kitchen: A beautifully-designed restaurant offering farm-to-table dishes like Kabocha Sqash Toast and Kale Salad with Lemon, Serranos and Mint, ABC Kitchen is one of our favorite spots for delicious fare that won’t leave us feeling weighed down for the rest of the afternoon. The perfect location to take an out of town guest.

Empellon Taqueria: A nice change from our usual salads and wraps, we love Empellon’s modern take on Mexican food – and they make a serious fish taco.

The Smile: For a more low-key meeting that won’t have the distractions of a bustling midtown restaurant – or wifi. We love the seasonal comfort food The Smile offers – and when you’re in a rush, they also have a to-go spot.

Rosemary’s: Is there anything better than a rustic Italian trattoria that grows its own produce?

The Dutch: A high energy bistro with an innovative twist on comfort food, The Dutch is the perfect spot to meet an old coworker or host a team bonding lunch date.
