formal breakfast

im a native (bronx) now living in Atl--- Im retired now and we go back to the city every year--When i worked we used to have a power breakfast at the Park Lane--terrific service,great views of the park--we eat there every year, but im wondering maybe there are places like the Park Lane that wed enjoy-Ive read Kathryns posts, and they are terrific, but im looking at a more formal bisness atmosphere, less of a foodie place--thanks BOB

    1. Is Michael's still a power breakfast place? That's what came immediately to mind.

        Michael's was never power breakfast; it was and still is Old School media lunch place. To the extent Old School Media means anything ; )

        New Media breakfast place is The ACE Hotel. Stumptown brought into the lobby or The Breslin.

        Breakfast is still Regency for Old Guard.
