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 Palm underwent an extensive renovation to modernize the design, but admiring the caricatures is still part of the experience. Beneath the glamour and the high prices, there's good food, spelled out in mammoth steaks, chops and lobsters. Hash-brown potatoes, bacon-wrapped scallops, creamed spinach and sparkling salads round out the picture.
