The Palm Restaurant Review

: The Palm is part of an upscale chain that doesn't feel like a chain. It has a clubby, exclusive aura. The Palm, however, delivers more than attitude. We recommend the GiGi salad, a chilled agglomeration of rock shrimp, onions, string beans and tomatoes in house vinaigrette. The mammoth lobsters here are, well, they're indeed mammoth lobsters, huge and sweet, for which The Palm enjoys renown. The shoestring onions are hard to stop eating. Oddly, while the steaks are good, in this city where quality steakhouses have popped up like, well, mushrooms, you can do better. If you like to save the best for last, get the crumbly, not-too-sweet, stick-to-your-ribs cheesecake.
