Dinner and drinks come with a side of deal-making at this nerve center for the Financial District's power players, where businesspeople come to woo clients with fine food and wine. It's the jewel in the crown of its prolific namesake chef/owner, who has many other restaurants around the city and country, but few quite this luxurious. From its high ceilings and cushiony banquettes to a huge and highly polished staff, this is an oasis for the corporate crowd. The three-course, prix fixe menu has returned its focus to Mina's signature "trios" of dishes served on oversized platters, highlighting one ingredient prepared in different ways or three similar ingredients. A trio of kataifi-crusted blue prawns might arrive atop creamy yogurt with mint and grape, avocado purée with nectarine, and tomato confiture with basil and finger lime; while wild striped bass is served with fig and pistachio, corn and shishito pepper, as well as heirloom tomato with red miso. For those looking to go all out, there's also a tasting menu option, complete with thoughtful wine pairings. If you'd rather not bring out the big guns, Mina offers a few of his signature dishes, such as ahi tuna tartare, à la carte.
