DEEELISH! a MANS restaurant!!
I finally went to the Palm to see if it could really live up to the reputation that it seems to have on so many new yorkers. AND IT DID 100%! Both my boyfriend and I work in the food and beverage industry..and have worked in various new york restaurants, so we know great food when we see it. and eat it!! he ordered the 28 ounce porterhouse steak..and i swear to god his eyes lit up when the old (and very unattentive) waiter brought it out. i ordered the 2 lb lobster because i knew i wouldnt be able to finish it all, and believe me i couldnt. i even ordered it CLEAN (wich means they deshell the entire lobster for you free of charge) and they warned me it would come out looking like ""nothing on my plate"" but i was sitll amazed by how much lobster meat was still on my plate! it was absolutley amazing. we had the baked clams as an appetizer, my boyfriend ate every damn clam, only saved me one he sadi ti was so amazing. for sides we got mashed potatoes and creamy spinache...DEFINETLY mouth watering..two sides are ENOUGH for two people, so be ware..because ALL of these proportions are monsterous. i it was a little pricey..not too bad we enjoyed ourselves. my boyfriend calls this a MANS restaurant...he says you can FEEL the testosterone when youwalk in the building. very small and cozy, all male staff, huge propportions, GREAT FOOD. im sad to say though, the ONE and ONLY dissapoinment to both of us was the service. now this doesnt go for the entire waitstaff but it seemed as though if you werent a large group, about to drop hundreds of dollar sthen you were nobody. i noticed my boyfriend and i got TERRIBLE service from the old snobby hag, but the table next to us (5 buisness men) were showered with amazing service by our SAME waitor. it was very rude and VERY noticeable.
but we shall return, and very soon, and continue to give this place nothing but good reviews because the overall experience and food was A+.
