The modern business lunch is but a delicate pas de deux, where a deft touch when it comes to showing your culinary credentials is as essential to the deal making as the art of the gab. And why should a work meal be a dull procession of forgettable and overly expensive grub at all? After all, good taste in restaurants reflects, in our opinion, the highest level of self-care and assuredness—don’t be caught out with a gastronomic faux pas and take our advice for the finest tables to ensure smooth runnings.
Nestled in Alexandra House with an expansive terrace, Gourmet Dining Group's French bistronomie-inspired restaurant and bar is where you'll find most tables occupied by either ladies who lunch or the besuited bending elbows with pristine glasses of Chateau Margaux. Here, do it the Parisian way with a lengthy, vin-soaked lunch of French onion soup followed by Challans duck and a souffle of the day—you may find your day blending into night, when you can retire to the Woodear bar for a cheeky dram of whiskey, too.
