NEW YORK (TheStreet) – In celebration of World Martini Day, elit™ by Stolichnaya® and Bloomberg Custom Content have released the Power Table Index, a list of the top 20 tables where many of the leading people in business close deals, maintain relationships and celebrate their successes. This Index is based on proprietary Bloomberg data featured on DINE, an exclusive database offering reviews of the country's best eateries.
According to Brent Lamberti, the Brand Ambassador for elit™ by Stolichnaya®, “It’s obvious that business men and women consider several factors when meeting about an important business decision.” One of these factors is the location. Businesspeople today want to make the moment memorable by taking their discussions and celebrations away from the confines of the office.
Of course, not any restaurant will do, and someone looking to impress his or her guest must choose the right one. These tables are located in some of the most valuable real estate spaces across 10 American cities: Beverly Hills, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.
As Ryan Serhant, a real estate agent on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York, explains, “I often think about the worth of these tables’ square footage based on the value of the negotiations that took place at them, which makes these 20 tables extremely valuable real estate!”
Once you’ve arrived at your restaurant of choice, Lamberti recommends ordering a martini. To him, this is the kind of drink that “commands respect, and is the perfect power cocktail to open a serious lunch and close a serious deal.”
