With hundreds of restaurants in the downtown area, there are an endless amount of options to hold a lunch meeting. But for a true power lunch these five restaurants are sure to give you the right backdrop for serious business conversations.

1 Chuck's Manufacturing

Chucks was made for entrepreneurs and business professionals. The restaurant caters to meetings with semi private seating with outlets for electronic devices all over the place. The food is amazing, and you can combine three small portions of their amazing dishes into one and “manufacture” your own meal.

2 Cafe Spiaggia

For a true power lunch in one of the most respectable and incredibly delicious retaurants, Cafe Spiaggia is the place to be. Tony Mantuano’s “haute Italian” plates are incredibly presented and prepared. If you ever need a place for a power dinner, look no further than the dinner-only Spiaggia, which boasts spectacular views of the lake.
