THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Palm Restaurant Review

: Despite the high prices, The Palm is always packed and the Bentleys keep rolling up outside. Though part of an international chain that serves as an oasis for displaced or wandering New Yorkers who hold the original Manhattan location so dear to their hearts, L.A.'s Palm maintains its own distinctive flavor: the brass rails, wood booths and crisp white linen of a serious steakhouse, combined with colorful caricatures on the walls of current and past Hollywood celebrities. The service is brisk and attentive---although often rushed---from what seem to be dedicated long-term professional waiters rather than struggling actors waiting for that big phone call. Atmosphere and service aside, this place is all about thick steaks and gargantuan---three pounds and up---lobsters, although there's a decent selection of fish options and a small range of Italian dishes on the menu. Some of the salads are ho-hum, but sides such as the fried onions and thick-cut cottage fries are recommendable, and the cheesecake, imported from the Big Apple, is a must. The wine list is rich with hard-to-find California Cabernets and full bodied Chardonnays. Also at 1100 S. Flower St., Los Angeles, 213-763-4600.
