Business Lunch in Boston

The power business lunch is about sealing the deal. The location and menu must impress; this isn’t the time for bargain hunting, or trying something new. It’s a time for tried and true Boston favorites. These places are popular during lunch hour, so reservations are advised.

This financial district power lunch spot exudes upscale. Their cuisine is described ad “modern American” and changes seasonally; though if you ask most of their lunch clientele, you don’t need to look past the $19 Radius burger. Topped with Vermont cheddar, crispy onions and horseradish sauce, it’s won all sorts of burger awards.

One of Boston’s noted steakhouses, this Back Bay restaurant is crawling with men in suits at lunch time. Abe & Louie’s offers outdoor dining, which can be a nice touch, especially for out-of-town clients. Try their ahi tuna burger or filet club sandwich.

With dark oak paneling and high ceilings, the Oak Room may not feel hip and current, but it does feel high quality, traditional and trusted. Try their chateaubriand sandwich with fresh-cooked chips on the side, their Kobe beef burger with sweet potato fries, or go for the traditional 16 oz NY strip.

Spacious with high ceilings, you won’t feel cramped and can talk candidly at Davio’s. It’s an Italian steakhouse located in the Back Bay. Their lunch menu is heavy on the salads, pasta, pizza and paninis.

If you’re willing to pay what it takes to land the deal, head to this Back Bay haven for French cuisine. You begin your experience when the hostess leads into the glass elevator for your ride to the third floor dining area. The staff here knows how to make each diner feel important, without creating a stuck up attitude. Lunch entrees are $25, or they offer a $29 three-course prix fixe power lunch all week.
