IT'S THE END of an era. The home of the original power lunch, The Four Seasons in New York, is closing down thus taking with it a 57-year tradition enjoyed by The Big Apple's great and powerful. How many deals have been brokered over the years by patrons including Henry Kissinger, Nora Ephron and Tom Wolfe?
Given Dubai possesses the same NYC go-get 'em spirit, we're happy the power business lunch is alive and well here, so here are five that always catch our eye.
1) Okku, The H Hotel
 Okku has three ordering options to select from light bites to a three course feast.
The Sui option is best suited for those sensitive on time and starts with a miso soup and green tea followed by a choice from the Donburi large plate selection which includes dishes such as the Agedashi Tofu.  
 Japanese classics? Go for the expertly made sushi or Miso black cod.
 
2) Zheng He's, Mina A'Salam
Chinese restaurant Zheng He's puts on a lunch inspired by the business lunch. Its Dim Sum Lunch Promotion means you can choose 10 pieces of dim sum for a set price.

3) Firebird Diner, Four Seasons Hotel, DIFC
This one is ideal for when time is of the essence. Firebird Diner's express set business lunch menu features dishes including grilled cheese and tomato soup, followed by a market salad and "All American Burger", or Michael Mina's Tuna Tartare, Grilled Prawn and Jalapeno Creamed Corn.  Served between 12pm and 4pm, the lunch package is Dhs130.

4) BOCA, DIFC
This southern French restaurant's lunch deal is unbeatable for variety. The daily changing lunch menu is sourced using local ingredients from the Shindaga fish market. Choose three dishes out of six, all served within an hour for Dhs120.

5) Big Chefs, Jumeriah Beach Residence
The Turkish establishment's three course  lunch menu offers a choice between a mezze platter or lentil soup for starters, Ciz Biz Steak served with rosemary baby potatoes, lamb chops with moutabel and fattoush, or mushroom and seafood risotto for mains, and a blueberry cheese kunefe or a strawberry millefeuille for dessert.
