Best Power Lunch - 2005
Readers' Choice: Racines
The world as we know it can be comfortably broken down into several sets of categories. For example, there are diner people and there are coffeehouse people, cr?me-br?lée people and chocolate-cake people, people who enjoy foie gras and people who would never consider eating the swollen liver of anything. And then there are people who like the Palm, and people who can't figure out what anyone could possibly see in this chummy, new money/old boys' club that seems to exist for no other reason than to give the few who still indulge in three-martini business lunches a place to do so, and more abstemious go-getters a place to cut deals around the sodden snoozers. All in all, though, a meal here is quite an event, with deals made on the side of every sirloin salad.
