The Palm Restaurant Review

: The Palm, founded in New York almost a century ago by a pair of Italian immigrants, now has numerous U.S. and international locations. Descendants of the founders still operate the company. Opened in 1997, Charlotte’s The Palm shows the restaurant’s signature décor: plenty of mahogany, leather, and caricatures of sports legends and celebrities. From its early days as an Italian establishment, The Palm has evolved a menu of classics that include many American standards: Italian-inspired veal dishes; shrimp or crab cocktail; dry-aged steaks (a bone-in dry-aged strip, for instance); Nova Scotia lobster; jumbo lump crab cakes. There’s a selection of salads and a substantial vegetable plate, too. Let the flourless chocolate cake tempt you for dessert. All patrons may dine in peace in the intimate booths and pick their libations from the 200-label-plus wine list, which fittingly focuses on Italian producers. Stop by post-work for “PrimeTime” at the Palm Bar, when all “Prime Bites,” such as lobster sliders and calamari, ring up at half off. Service is professional.
