Power Tables

bombay%20club%20tiny.jpgThere are two kinds of power diners out there: Those who want everyone to see how powerful they are and those who are actually powerful. Dining Bisnow took a look at six local restaurants known for their ritzy clientele (The Palm, Bombay Club, The Source, Oval Room, Bourbon Steak and Equinox) and analyzed the best seats in the house for each. Shockingly, it seems to come down to a choice between a secluded table in a hidden nook or an attention-grabbing seat smack in the center of the room. But even Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has to wait for a table sometimes. [Dining Bisnow]
