Lunch in Tbilisi’s highest skyscraper
At the elevation of 256 meters, eleven workers are sitting on a girder without special equipment, talking quietly, eating lunch and laughing at each other’s jokes. Behind them, there is a foggy horizon of Manhattan, while down there is New York, which turned into the center of the world and the dream of thousands of people thanks to such brave humans.

The photograph was taken on September 20, 1932 at Manhattan, during the construction
of one of the main skyscrapers of Rockefeller Center, GE Building. The history of eating lunch as well as the history of the skyscraper originates from New York and spreads all around the world gradually.

In the beginning, the photo became the symbol of the epoch’s industrialization, and later popular brands launched their own advertising campaigns on its motifs.
It happened a century ago. But what is going on now?

Here we offer some general tips for the business lunch.

• Reserve a table in the restaurant in advance. It would be better if you visit the restaurant which offers business lunch menu.
• While having a business lunch, sometimes partners devote less time to business and start friendly talking. If you want the meeting to be effective, have the agenda of the subjects you are going to discuss with you. Try to avoid talking about your personal matters as much as possible.
• Do not put your mobile phone on the table. Switch it off or switch off the sound.
• The person who asked for the meeting should generally pick up the check. So do not wait for the partner to pay or think about equal payment, if you are the initiator of the meeting.
