5 Best Restaurants for a Business Lunch

3 of 5

Los Angeles: Craft

The unofficial commissary for Hollywood talent agencies CAA and ICM (which have headquarters close by), Tom Colicchio’s West Coast outpost has been a power lunch hotspot since it opened in 2007. Haute takes on comfort food classics abound—the lunch menu features smoked fish pie and hearty pastas, as well as roast chicken and Yukon gold mashed potatoes served family style. And unlike some paparazzi-magnet eateries in L.A. where the food is a mediocre afterthought (cough—The Ivy—cough), Craft’s delicious cuisine deserves to be just as high-profile as its clientele.
COST: Appetizers are $10 - $18, entrees are $14 - $33, and sides are $9 - $13.
