On the Tuesday before Thanksigiving, the bf asked me to prepare a "Friendsgiving" dinner for a bunch of his buddies, kicking off the holiday eating spree. I prepared a fabulous home-cooked feast (including the honey glazed ham that I posted about here) and to thank me, the bf took me to dinner at The Palm!
The Palm is a low key steakhouse - laid-back feel with lots of wooden booths and caricatures on the wall. No stuffiness here! You could easily mistake it for an Italian restaurant but they offer a traditional NY steakhouse dinner with all the fixings (and a full bar of course)!
|Loved the caricatures on the wall! (Apologies on the terrible picture - no flash)|
This year is the Palm's 85th anniversary and to celebrate they were offering a special anniversary special:

$85 for two starters, two sides, a steak, and two lobster tails???? Such a good deal...how could I pass it up! To start, we selected the Lobster Bisque and a Chopped Tomato and Onion Salad.

The Chopped Tomato and Onion Salad was just that...chopped tomatoes and onions topped with blue cheese. While refreshing and light, I could only have so much before I had enough. If you are not a fan of raw onions (a lot of raw onions...), I'd suggest you try something different. The Lobster Bisque was phenomenal - rich and creamy with tasty chunks of lobster!
With our appetites whetted, we were ready for our main course. Bring on the steak and lobsters!

Overall, I enjoyed my experience at The Palm. The waiters were friendly and responsive, the atmosphere easy breezy, and the meal satisfying. I say give it a go!
Piggy says Yes!
