Wine, Dine & Sign: 10 global hot spots to take agency clients

The PulseLet’s face it.  In the business world, despite every terrific tweet, luminous LinkedIn recommendation and fantastic Facebook post, sometimes a little quality time and face-to-face action is just what it takes to really connect with your clients and get the job done.  With this week’s Pulse, we step away from our usual online and social media focus in order to highlight offline hot spots — specifically, some of the best-recommended restaurants from around the world for hosting agency clients.   We know that online presence and audience engagement across the social sphere are critical for public relations and marketing professionals today, but we also recognize that offline “real life” is where some really great stuff happens. After all, contracts aren’t signed on Twitter, and most new business pitches are still sealed with a handshake and a smile.  Here’s a list of ten sit-down social hot spots.

So how did we source this week’s list?  We started our research by asking you—our readers—for nominations, and many of the submissions we received are featured here.   Not all of these dining greats are as impressive with their social media presence as they are with their ambiance, but you never know what the future holds.  Remember, the best relationships today are built online and offline.  So take a look at our list, click on the SlideShare link above for the full report, and bon appétit.
