Going out for a business lunch after an important meeting or pitch requires at least a little planning ahead. To help our Philly execs connect with restaurants in the area that are sure to please their dining guests, Arden came up with a list of three 5-star eateries that offer top quality service and fare.
These local restaurants would make the perfect venue for your next business lunch in the City of Brotherly Love. Check them out, listed in alphabetical order below.
In the mood for authentic Mediterranean with a modern vibe? If so, Barbuzzo on 13th Street should climb to the top of your business lunch list.
Grab a table with your clients in Barbuzzo’s classy and cool dining room that’s dominated by wood, brick, and granite. The open kitchen allows you to take a peek at the restaurant’s inner culinary operations. You might see the distant glow of their prize wood-burning stove, where they forge what diners have repeatedly cited as the best pizza this side of Italy.
There’s also a signature 8-oz burger with a Mediterranean twist and the Anipasti plate from the Chef’s Bar that features a rainbow spread of tantalizing Italian eats like honey-roasted carrots and hummus made with fried chickpeas.
For sushi and Japanese eats in a truly unique atmosphere, book a table at Morimoto Restaurant on Chestnut Street. Morimoto’s exceptional cuisine and conversation-inspiring setting play off one another in the best way. Modern seating, globular sculptures, and one-of-a-kind, color-changing partitions that replicate a wave rolling in further bring head Chef Morimoto’s traditional Japanese dishes to life.
First timers to Morimoto are encouraged to try the Omakase, a chef’s choice tasting menu that highlights featured sushi rolls, hot entrées, and sides enjoyed in the Kaiseki tradition.
The raw bar and the sushi and sashimi station feature countless ultra-fresh seafood elements, including king crab, seasonal oysters, scallops, and red snapper.
Parc Restaurant & Bistro
Interested in transporting your clients to the streets of Paris for an impromptu meal? If so, there’s no better place to park than at Parc Restaurant and Bistro on 18th Street. With abundant outdoor seating that looks out onto a beautiful view of Rittenhouse Square, a sun-filled dining room, and attentive wait staff, French culture and cuisine thrive at this true-to-form Parisian-style café.
When it comes to Parc’s extensive menu, baguettes made in-house and delicious and fresh charcuterie platters don’t even begin to cover it. Customers rave about the trout almandine that’s expertly seared and served with garlic-shallot green beans and a lemon brown butter. Or go for the mouthwatering Gruyere cheese omelette studded with herbs de Provence and signature spices.
