pow · er lunch
noun  a high-powered business meeting conducted over lunch

Power lunches are all the talk nowadays. However, there is much confusion as to what actually defines a power lunch. I’m here to crush all the uncertainty as to what exactly a power lunch is. I’d like to thank my colleagues Andrew Bagherpour and Karl Manner for cosponsoring my definition.

Here is the official guide to what constitutes a power lunch:

  1. Attendees must be productive before and after lunch
  2. Restaurant cannot take longer than 15 minutes from ordering to food on the table
  3. Clean and simple food only (sammys, salads, soups, burgers, burritos, wraps)
  4. Conversation must be semi-productive
  5. 1-1 exclusivety (rare exceptions are granted for three-ways)
  6. Restaurants must have table ordering and attendees must be seated by waitress
  7. Collared shirts required
  8. Extra points rewarded for outside seating and strong sun presence
