America's Most Powerful Lunch

Dublin Core

Title America's Most Powerful Lunch
Description This article, published in Esquire in October 1979, did not coin the term "power lunch," but it assembled all the important theatrical elements associated with the concept. Famous names and faces were crucial, the setting had to be luxurious, and the food had to be stylish. Unlimited expense accounts played a significant supporting role.
