A business lunch is a perfect way to impress a new client, celebrate the closing of a major deal or get some work done outside of the office. For occasions like this, a restaurant’s reputation is just as important as your own.
In Chicago, steak reigns supreme. But because not everyone may be in the mood for red meat, it’s wise to select a restaurant that provides plenty of options for every palate. At OML Worldwide, we know a thing or two about wining and dining clients and getting outside of the office for an hour or two. These Chicago restaurants are the perfect setting for a power lunch.
11 W Illinois Street
BoHo is a popular place during the evening, but you’re seriously missing out if you’ve never taken advantage of their lunchtime service. The Central European-inspired lunch menu may be smaller than the dinner menu (pierogis and schnitzel, anyone?), but it is just as impressive — and delicious — as dinner. Another plus: BoHo is significantly less crowded during the daytime. You’ll be able to enjoy a tasty meal and conversation with your companions at one of Chicago’s trendiest restaurants.

Picking up clients straight out of O’Hare? Ram Restaurant & Brewery, in Rosemont, is less than 10 minutes from the airport, and its menu of burgers, barbecue and beer are the perfect way for tired, hungry business travelers to refuel. A meal at this brewpub is an excellent way to kick back with clients and coworkers.
Locations throughout Chicagoland
If you’re hosting clients or partners who are new to Chicago, deep-dish pizza has to be on the itinerary. Lou Malnati’s arguably offers some of the best deep-dish in town. The family-style joint has several locations throughout Chicagoland. We recommend the sausage deep-dish pizza and would venture to say that it’s life-changing.
