Photo Gallery | The Power Lunches of Tyson's Corner

"It was nice having lunch with you. I look forward to working with you in the future," said a gentlemen as he departed the upscale dining area of The Tower Club.

With 26.6 million square feet of office space, it's no wonder that Tyson's Corner hosts thousands of power lunches each day. Networking while you lunch is a popular concept in the Washington, D.C. area, and particularly in Tyson's corner, as it is Virginia's largest office market and one of the nation's top business centers. Fairfax County Economic Development Authority says, "The Tysons Corner submarket is ideally situated at the intersection of the Capital Beltway (I-495) and the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267), roughly equidistant from Washington, D.C. and Washington Dulles International Airport."

Moreover, Tyson's is home to a wide range of employers, including numerous corporate or regional headquarters and government contractors. Some of the largest corporations include Booz Allen Hamilton, Gannett, MicroStrategy, Northrop Grumman, SAIC, Deloitte, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Freddie Mac, and the National Automobile Dealers Association. 

So when do all the business deals, decisions, acquisitions, and mergers happen? Well, it's probably over lunch.

"You cannot go wrong at the Tyson's Palm - is there really anyplace else?" said Sheri Page, the Operations Manager of The Potomac Officers Club and ExecutiveBiz.

"Wildfire has a great three course business lunch menu which is well priced and makes lunch easy to order. There are also quieter areas, even private rooms, that make conversation and business lunches popular. Wildfire serves an upscale clientele, yet doesn't break the bank," said Bunny Polmer.
