David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders


2007/01/31 NYC bright lights, fashionable restaurants

Posted on January 31, 2007 by daviding

On my second leg of this business trip, I actually got to stay in Manhattan for a few days. The hotel (and office) were close to Radio City Music Hall, so I got to see some bright lights.

Plus, down the street was 7th Avenue, leading down to Times Square.

For a change, our team got some team-building in, when we met over dinner. There’s something about New York restaurants. The food is great, but it’s also great in other cities. What’s different in New York is the effort to be fashionable. Here’s a server at Rosa Mexicano (up by Columbus Circle) making guacamole, table side.

Could I make guacamole that good? Sure, but I don’t have to do it for a 6-hour shift with diners expecting entertainment! Here’s the team focused on media and entertainment business customers.

On the other night, we went downtown to Chinatown Brasserie, just north of 4th Street. The food was upscale from what you would get down on Mott Street.

The most interesting change on this trip, for me, was that I’m now part of a marketing group, rather than a services delivery group. I’d forgotten that marketing people have more fun!
