The Four Seasons is a New York original, with a stunning, landmarked interior designed in 1959 by Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson. It caters to a faithful clientele of Gothamite high-rollers and power-lunchers, serving an American menu that offers few surprises but usually manages to satisfy everyone's tastes. Located in Park Avenue’s historic Seagram Building, this is the place to order things like Ossetra caviar with rösti potato, steak tartare prepared tableside, and chateaubriand with haricots verst and béarnaise sauce, then sit back and dine like a grown-up.

Take a power lunch amongst Manhattan's elite from business moguls to celebrities, you never know who might be at the next table. Don't forget to explore the restaurant's rich art history.

Although Ivanka Trump says that lunch is more work-oriented, she still finds time for a delicious power lunch at the Four Seasons restaurant on East 52nd Street.

Pool room was beautiful and romantic. Excellent service and excellent food. Prices are a bit steep but to be expected.

Yeah, that's Donald Trump two tables over, which explains why our table was ignored until he left. Don't expect them to remember which occasion you said you were celebrating, either.

Expensive but every bite is amazing. Warm fois gras and yuzu souffl were definite stand-outs. And eat at the counter... more action and more exciting!

This is the quintessential Manhattan power lunch, where the movers and shakers, wheelers and dealers, Wall Street bankers and Madison Avenue advertisers, have been coming for years.
