The Palm Restaurant Review

: Part of an international chain, The Palm feels like home to transplanted New Yorkers who yearn for a nostalgic taste of the Big Apple. The original West Coast location in West Hollywood has earned a reputation as an L.A. institution, its walls covered with caricatures of Hollywood celebrities. This branch is located one block from Staples Center in the once-dreary South Park neighborhood, suddenly exploding with high-end condos and lofts. The signature high-backed wood booths, caricature-filled walls and crisp white linens are all found here, amidst vintage columns and chandeliers. The service downtown is a bit more relaxed and attentive than in West Hollywood, and the menu delivers all the usual steakhouse staples, as well as some Italian specialties. Start with clams casino before moving into the big, juicy steaks. The three-pound-plus lobsters, paired with a steak for The Palm surf ā€˜nā€™ turf specialty, are also popular. Among side dishes, we suggest the creamed spinach and fried onion strings (which we forgive for being a bit greasy). A big red wine from California, Bordeaux or Piedmont is the best way to wash it all down, and the list is more than respectable. Cheesecake, flown in from the Bronx, is a good way to finish before being shocked by the bill.
