Minneapolis is home to many large companies and corporations, and people from all over the world come to the city on business every single day. If you’re in town to visit a client or work at your company’s headquarters, then you likely want to find some good places to eat and to see the sights while you’re here.

At Moto-i, our Japanese restaurant is a great choice for lunch, dinner, or an after-hours drink. If you’re taking clients out or you want to treat yourself while you travel, we’d love to have you visit!

Take Clients to Lunch

You might be in town to land a big new client, and you need to be on your A-game when it comes to selling them on your product or service. Taking them to lunch can often give you a level playing field, and you can get to know them before you give the big sales pitch.

You may also meet them for lunch before going back to their office, where you can then get down to brass tacks on your sales proposal. A restaurant can provide the perfect neutral setting for you to show them who you are and what you have to offer.

Treat Yourself

When traveling on your own for business, you may not have a lot of downtime. You’re meeting with clients all day, and you’re trying to get other work done in between those meetings. You’re probably grabbing a quick breakfast at the hotel before you leave for the day, and lunch is nothing more than a snack before you connect with that next client.

Once dinner time rolls around, it can be fun to treat yourself to a great meal. If you love traditional Japanese cuisine, then we can provide you dishes that you’ve had before, or whip up something you’ve never tried. Either way, sitting down for an hour or so can help you relax and unwind after a hectic day before you head back to your hotel.

Celebrate Landing That New Client

Perhaps you’re in town with a business partner or a team of people, and you’re all working together that land that one big client. Should you be successful, it’s important to celebrate that success, and going out for dinner and drinks can be a great way to do that. Everyone has been giving presentations and in meetings all week, and seeing that pay off can be monumental.

Gathering everyone for dinner and conversation can allow them to unwind and debrief before they head back to their own city. You may have teammates from all across the country, and this is the only time of year that you’ll see them. Having dinner together can be the perfect time to catch up and celebrate your success.
