Travelers often associate a business trip to New York City with a meal at one of the city's high-profile eateries.
At Shackman Associates, we can help meeting attendees find Manhattan's "secret" restaurants, which dining experiences small business groups will remember. Some venues are initimate enough - like the Wine Cellar at 21 - to accomodate a private lunch or dinner meeting of association executives. Others are located in quiet neighborhoods that are close enough to hotels and nightlife without being inundated with tourists.
For example, one venue just 5 blocks from the Gansevoort Hotel in Chelsea offers a private upstairs party room that few people know about and a lively lounge downstairs to continue an after-event celebration. These kinds of venues are perfect for small incentive groups.
Want to eat New York's world-class sushi and avoid the lines in Midtown? We are familiar with several Upper West Side establishments who can accommodate groups with an incredibly fresh menu of creative plates.
