Bar Boulud

This casual restaurant from New York chef Daniel Boulud, at ground level in the Mandarin Oriental hotel, is known for its great burgers. It is also a very convivial venue for a drink. If you can grab a seat at the bar, you're likely to find yourself chatting to staffers and fellow customers. There's no pressure to order food, though I rarely resist.

Signature drink: White Cosmopolitan (13.25 pounds).
