I will be meeting a new business contact from "way out of town" for the first time next week and I am seeking suggestions for a venue for a less formal, but not too casual business lunch near the airport. I prefer a mainstream...Italian, North American etc... menu because I have no idea what my contact's taste in food might be. I want to leave the impression that I represent a hip company but practical with both feet on the ground that can do the job without resorting to overly impressing new clients. I am thinking a restaurant the contact would never find on his own with good food and good value that is quiet enough to conduct a fairly serious business meeting.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
