Deal maker or deal breaker, it’s all about setting the scene. Orange County’s got some storied spots and some big-hitting power players when it comes to closing the deal with a memorable meal. Here are the Top 5 Power Lunch Spots where you can break bread and make major connections.

1 The Catch

In its new location in the Platinum Triangle, the Catch still has the charm and history of its original spot. Old booths from the famous restaurant were put in and the menu’s still got the classic American staples that made it the place to go to if you needed to impress. It just goes to show that the old school’s still got it.

2 Morton’s the Steakhouse

Whether you’re in the bar, a booth or the private board room, one glance around Morton’s and you can tell this is where the big boys come out to play. Steak, seafood and more are the main draw, but the dark and handsome dining rooms are where those handshakes are made and OC’s power players put pen to paper.

3 Scott’s Seafood

Right in the hub of Costa Mesa’s high rises, Scott’s not only has a prime location, its also got the best selection of seafood around.  For a fresher approach to the power lunch, play it cool with a reservation at this more reserved spot. But don’t think it’s not impressive – when crab legs or Maine lobster come out, you know you’re playing to win.

4 Brasserie Pascal

Fashion Island’s the heart of Newport Beach’s business district, so its an easy choice for lunch. The star spot? Brasserie Pascal, a chic twist on the French bistro, where the food is as impressive as the ambiance. Sophisticated and smooth, there’s no place like this to charm a client.

5 Marche Moderne

Sitting high above South Coast Plaza in the Penthouse, Marche Modern has quietly gained accolades and awards for its food and desserts. The perfect spot for a quiet lunch (the famed prix fixe three-course meal is a must-have) it’s an oasis from the hustle and bustle, whether you’re escaping the office or a round of power shopping.
