Novi - Business Lunch??

Hello,

I have two people coming in from out of town for a business meeting. Novi is the most centrally located city, but I'm not real familiar with the restaurants in that area. I'm looking for something VERY convenient from the expressways and hopefully some decent lunch as well.

    Andiamo's Novi location has an awesome lunch menu, and it's always nice and quiet at that time. Pricey at night but actually pretty reasonable for lunch, especially for the quality.

          As a frequent diner at Steve & Rocky's please explain "malaga" and is there more on the secret drink menu? Any other secrets?

        Hi All,

        thanks for the advice. I'll do a little digging into these and see which one will work out.

        Thanks again!

          You got some good recommendations above - Novi has some very good places, and a ton of blah chains. Avoid the chains if you can!

            Several good picks—as I recall, Cherry Blossom has separate room up front, with natural light, that would be great for a business meeting.

            Bibimbap is as close as any of the listed places. But, it is VERY hard to see from the street. If you want to take the chance that you will spot it, then you will get a quite tasty and interesting lunch. The place is 'business intimate,' meaning that you may share a grill and little side dishes with your associates, in a bonding and conversation-starting manner. Not sure if that fits your need. Maybe you just need quiet, and table space on which to display documents? In any event, many Korean business people like to meet there.

              Cherry Blossom is good for a business meeting if they like Sushi.
