How does one go about doing a business meeting in a city? (specifically NYC)
I'm meeting some potential employers for the first time, not sure of what protocol is...

Some background: I'm 18, un-practiced in the finer arts of lunch meetings, and I'm going to be meeting some potential employers in Manhattan to speak about me potentially joining their company- exciting stuff.
Now they are visiting from Silicon Valley, so it's not like I'm going to go into their company's office. They said they wanted to get lunch- how does that work?
How is a place figured out? I'm from a little upstate, but spend time in the city, am I expected to perhaps suggest a place? How do we meet? Should I linger outside and wait for them? Check in? What if they're checked in first?
I am nervous to the point of retardation. Simple facts from the hivemind will help. Thank you.
