The modern business lunch is but a delicate pas de deux, where a deft touch when it comes to showing your culinary credentials is as essential to the deal making as the art of the gab. And why should a work meal be a dull procession of forgettable and overly expensive grub at all? After all, good taste in restaurants reflects, in our opinion, the highest level of self-care and assuredness—don’t be caught out with a gastronomic faux pas and take our advice for the finest tables to ensure smooth runnings.
Zest By Konishi
Its Central location, bright pops of colour and flood of natural light makes this a reassuring and reliable spot for an enjoyable lunch, even before you factor in chef Mitsuru Konishi’s contemporary Japanese fare, with its haute cuisine vibes on the 28th floor and more casual offerings on the 28th floor lounge. But don’t be mistaken—the latter menus also offer “enhancements” such as Hokkaido sea urchin, Kristal caviar and winter black truffle to be added to dishes such as wild amberjack with mango, red onion and tosazu vinegar, or the signature Ping Yuen chicken with lotus leaf and foie gras rice.
