NYT (September 25, 2015) In the seats are four men having a business lunch: James F. Fallon, 53, who runs the New York-based investor relations firm CEOcast; Robert E. Woods, 69, who is with the same firm; David Filer, 67, of Target Health, a New York-based company that runs clinical trials for biotech and pharmaceutical companies; and Andrew Dahl, 59, president and chief executive of the biotech company Zivo Bioscience, in Keego Harbor, Mich. All four ordered the $17.95 lunch special, which included an appetizer and an entree. Among the dishes sampled: a chicken-and-vegetable soup seasoned with lemon juice; spinach tarator, a yogurt dip; lahana dolmasi, cabbage stuffed with a mixture of ground beef and lamb; chicken adana kebabs, made with meat that is minced and flavored with red peppers and paprika; and a gyro kebab. To finish, Ali Riza Dogan, the restaurant’s owner, sent the men a round of Turkish tea and a plate of baklava with his compliments because Dr. Filer is a longtime regular.
WHY THEY CAME: Mr. Dahl had hired Mr. Fallon’s firm to help find potential investors, and the lunch was an opportunity for Mr. Dahl to meet Dr. Filer, who was one. Mr. Dahl had flown in from Detroit that morning, and it was the first of several meetings that Mr. Fallon’s firm had scheduled for him over the course of the week. They chose Ali Baba’s Terrace at Dr. Filer’s suggestion.
