The Palm Restaurant Review

: This Broad Street emporium of fine steaks and seafood attracts the dealmakers from City Hall and the area's high-rises. The bar is always busy, and having your caricature on the wall insures status among the money boys --- it's a real he-man spot after all. Beneath the glamour and the high prices, there's good food, spelled out in mammoth steaks, chops and lobsters. Hash-brown potatoes, potato skins, creamed spinach and sparkling salads round out the picture. It may not have the sawdust-on-the-floor, speakeasy charm of the New York original, but the crowds, and the high noise level, indicate that glitz works, too. A Prime Bites menu features treats such as crab cakes, fried oysters and veal Parm sliders, available Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. until closing.
