Palm One







“What you want in a steakhouse” is what’s on offer at this chain delivering “ginormous” cuts and “huge lobsters” in “nostalgic”, caricature-adorned digs; service swings from “caring” to “resentful”, but that makes no difference to the “old boys” who say “if I could afford to go every day, I would”; P.S. the 1926 original is at 837 Second Avenue.

About the Restaurant

The Palm's original flagship location has been a New York dining institution since it opened in 1926. Founders John Ganzi and Pio Bozzi, natives of Parma, Italy, envisioned their restaurant as a homage to the Italian cuisine of their homeland. But when diners increasingly requested steak, they obliged. Four generations later, the Palm is still owned by members of the Ganzi and Bozzi families, and though classic Italian dishes like veal Milanese and chicken Parmigiana are served, it's the traditional steak house fare and robust seafood options (shrimp cocktail, baked clams casino, whole lobsters) that have kept the restaurant in the spotlight. An extensive list of wines (by the bottle or glass), cocktails, and after-dinner drinks makes it easy to linger at your table or in the bar area up front. The walls are famously adorned with celebrity caricatures, a tradition that began early on when struggling artists would offer to paint a portrait in exchange for a meal (and is now a decor staple of Palm locations nationwide). On weekdays, businesspeople make deals over martinis and 24-ounce bone-in rib eyes, while weekends tend to attract a mix of local residents and visitors looking for a dependable meal in Midtown Manhattan.
