The success of a project can depend on the way how lunch in the company of your business partner goes, even more than you think! Tête-à-tête meetings are a valuable way to build solid relationships, especially in the current context of digital communication. Business lunch is the right opportunity to meet your collaborators and openly discuss business plans.

The main purpose of a business lunch is not to have lunch, but to know and understand your companion a little better.

Of course, this does not mean you do not have to eat, but that lunch is more of a pretext for your meeting. Study the menu a bit before arriving in the restaurant so you will know what to choose from. Our suggestion is to choose a Swedish buffet restaurant, because this menu is ideal for a business meal for a variety of reasons:

1. You do not have to wait for the order to arrive

One thing to avoid, especially in the case of a business meeting, is the long wait for the order to arrive. A buffet menu guarantees that your time will not be wasted. In addition, the meeting will start by focusing around the richly prepared buffet, giving you the opportunity to discover details about your business partner's personality and tastes - it is recommended that at a business lunch you should allow the disclosure of the human, personal side of your partner, for a better understanding and communication.
A brief exchange of ideas and impressions about things that are not strictly business related can set the tone of a relaxed and natural encounter, a good framework for cultivating mutual trust.

2. You cannot go wrong with a varied menu

Each person's diet depends on several factors. Some restrictions (allergies, diets) or lifestyle choices (such as vegetarianism, for example) can ruin your lunch plans when booking at an inappropriate restaurant. With a buffet menu, there are plenty of choices to suit everyone. Even if you do not have information about your business partner's preferences and dietary restrictions, a buffet always has rich but well-balanced options so that everyone can enjoy the lunch they desire.

3. Payment in advance

Payment in advance is a discrete solution when planning a business lunch. At a business lunch buffet, reservation and payment can be made in advance, thus avoiding the moment of waiting for the bill; this way, you and your business partner can focus your attention and energy to the things that really matter to you.

At Corso Brasserie, located on the ground floor of the InterContinental Hotel, you can find the buffet business lunch concept with a variety of delicious treats, in a bright, elegant and familiar space at the same time.

A live cooking station for fresh pasta with several types of sauces will surprise you with the authentic Italian taste, right in the center of Bucharest. A hot plate of several international dishes invites you to take a culinary journey around the world, and vegetarian meals can be supplemented with meat dishes fresh from the oven.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, a selection of French cheese, Romanian cold cuts and more, and even an in-house bakery with a toaster at hand are a delicate and select snack.
Homemade desserts sweeten up your business meetings, and refreshing drinks, coffee and tea are included in the fixed price of a buffet lunch at Corso Brasserie.

With a business lunch at the Corso Brasserie, the battle is half-won - from here, it's only up to you to succeed!

Corso Brasserie is an ideal venue for business lunch meetings during the week and weekends - with the exception of Sunday, when Brunchissimo is held here. This is a laidback Sunday brunch, more suitable for meeting family and friends.
