Power Lunch and Business coffee

Hi - Looking for some great places to power lunch or have a great business coffee (NOT STARBUCKS or Oren's obviously) around Madison Avenue between 56th and 65th. Any suggestions? Help...I am wine-ing and dining and don't know the city well.

  1. For coffee, I'd definitely go to Bottega del Vino on 59th between 5th & Madison.

    1. It's on 52nd/Park but when you say "power lunch" the Four Seasons is the only lunch place that comes to my mind.

      1. We ALWAYS go to Brasserie for our morning business meetings/coffee!

        Brasserie 100 East 53rd Street
        New York, NY 10022

          Brasserie looks amazing...
          will definitely try it!

            Yes - that's definitely a "power" breakfast place.

          2. Le Cirque - not only will you have power lunch, you are probably going to see a lot of powerful people.

            You can also have coffee in their cafe.

              Thank you, all!!!
              so helpful...
              I ended up having coffee at Bottega Del Vino, which was great and sooo busy.
              The others are definitely going to targets also.

              Next challenge - A great coffee place near 36th and 5th...any ideas?
