Bluestem Brasserie

If you need a work power lunch near Union Square, go to Bluestem. Sure, the inside looks like a hotel lobby and the solid burger is $18, but you’re here to make deals and impress someone into buying direct response ads or chipping in to your ICO that will revolutionize banana stand commerce. The duck confit salad and brussels sprouts are good moves, and happy hour runs until 6:30, making it a good place for post-work snacks and drinks.
