So, I’m meeting with a VERY IMPORTANT business associate on Thursday, March 31st, downtown, or near downtown.
I’m not a lunch-meeting-type person, nor do I typically have a lunch-meeting-type job, so this is totally out of the ordinary for me. She’s flying in to meet with a number of people (not just me), and has asked me to pick the destination.
She said “pick a restaurant” and my brain just kinda shut down. I literally almost said Marisco Jalisco, which would have made for a great lunch (for me), but not necessarily a good impression.
My criteria would be:
Within 10 to 15 minutes of downtown.
Quiet enough to discuss business.
Not going to make me look unhinged for recommending it.
Not too extravagant.
Pretty much exactly in that order.
