THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Palladium Restaurant Review

: Stroll along the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, and come to this popular spot, nestled in with all of the other ivy-covered buildings. Inside, there is a busy bar with wood paneling and leaded casement windows. A roaring fire may be going in winter, but in the warmer months there’s outdoor seating. It is all very Ivy League, and that’s who it serves, Ivy Leaguers of every age, size and description. They congregate here with bowls of guacamole or bean dip or chicken wings. Non-collegians will still enjoy the food that defies description---there’s North Carolina BBQ pork or a tropical fruit and lobster tail salad, for example. You can have South African lamb kebabs, or rum marinated pork---things seem as international as the student body.
