Power Lunch and Business coffee

jessicaggh Jul 16, 2008 01:51 PM

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.

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

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

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

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

            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?
