NEW YORK, June 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate World Martini Day, elit™ by Stolichnaya®, released the Power Table Index, a list of the 20 best tables, where major business deals are closed. Bloomberg Custom Content collaborated with elit™ by Stolichnaya® to curate this index, which identifies the most valuable real estate spaces where the most influential businesspeople across 10 American cities close deals, maintain relationships and celebrate their successes.
Today's power meetings are more than just business – and they're not taking place in the corner office alone. They are a mix of tradition and innovation – and involve making a lasting impression, which is why elit™ by Stolichnaya® set out to recognize the influence of the power tables. According to Ryan Serhant, real estate agent on Bravo's Million Dollar Listing New York, critical to the "Recipe for Success" is a cocktail that commands respect – the martini.
"Realty is a very social business. I have closed some of my biggest deals over dirty martinis at The Nomad Restaurant," said Serhant. "Because of my background, I often think about the worth of these tables' square footage based on the value of the negotiations that took place at them, which makes these 20 tables extremely valuable real estate!"
Serhant announced the elit™ by Stolichnaya® Power Table Index, sourced by Bloomberg Custom Content, at an exclusive media event at one of the New York venues to make the list – ABC Kitchen in the Flatiron District. The list features:

"It's obvious that business men and women consider several factors when meeting about an important business decision," said Brent Lamberti, Brand Ambassador for elit™ by Stolichnaya®. "One factor is choosing the perfect drink. The martini commands respect, and is the perfect power cocktail to open a serious lunch and close a serious deal."
