New York is a city that most B2B sales reps will find themselves in at some point. Nearly every major company has a presence in Manhattan or one of the other boroughs. With over 8 Million residents and many more travelers, there are nearly unlimited options for food, drink, and entertainment while traveling for business. Here is a brief travel guide. Due to the sheer size and importance of New York, we will have additional guides in the future as well as other key cities.

Here are a few tips to make the most of your trip:

Best place to eat for breakfast

If you are anything like me, your breakfast consists of multiple coffees and whichever sandwich can be quickly heated up. Starbucks is wonderful, but there is so much more to explore in New York. If in the Midtown Manhattan area, consider The Red Flame Diner. It is quick, delicious, and very reasonable by New York standards.

Best place to eat for lunch

Eataly NY, located in the Flatiron District has a number of options, so you won’t lack variety. While this is technically an Italian Grocery Store, there are a number of options for lunch, including pasta, sandwiches, pizza, meats, cheeses, etc. In addition, if you have time for desert, coffee, or even a drink, they’ve got you covered.

Best place to eat for dinner (especially if entertaining clients)

44&X is a gothic inspired bar in Hell’s Kitchen. Their motto is “Heaven in Hell” and they live up to the hype. This is a great location to take clients to. It is not too loud, but still has some life. The lighting creates a unique ambiance (right down to surprisingly uncreepy candlelit bathrooms). The Chicken and Waffles comes highly recommended by the Sales Couture braintrust.

Best place for beer

Whether back in Hell’s Kitchen or a little north on the Upper West Side, beer nerds will find no better sanctuary than Beer Culture.


Check out Connolly’s Pub for a great Shepherd’s Pie

A surprisingly cool hotel

Yotel fancies itself “a new breed of hotel” and I can’t say I disagree. I have only stayed there one night but can attest to the fact that it is an extremely unique, albeit refreshing take on a hotel. You stay in Cabins which look like they were furnished by IKEA, but the amenities and value for price are impressive.

At the end of the day there is much more to explore in New York. Consider this first of many travel guides for the city that never sleep
