3. Jay-Z's 40/40 Club
It would have been one thing to make a trendy, one-off NYC restaurant but the Jigga man got his mogul on and made a successful chain of sports bars/club lounges. And the food is good. A nationwide airport is currently being planned but the original Flatiron District location is still the top spot. No word yet on when "lobster & scrimp" will be added to the menu.
