Palm One Steakhouse
There is no school like the old school and I'm the headmistress. Original locale sports wood booths, celebrity caricatures and the owner greets you like you haven't been here in a million years- how's the family? You come to the Palm for classics. Starting with the lobster bisque(pictured) with sherry cream you are sent straight to heaven. If you start with the lump crab meet served in an elegant silver serving dish you are also headed straight up with fresh seafood.
The steaks here are taken seriously and my rib eye(medium rare) was meat perfection. Juicy, a little fatty, bone in of course. Brussel sprouts as a side were slightly overcooked, but with a shallot flavor. A warm bag of donuts for dessert were darkly fried, warm, tasting like cornmeal served with chcocolate sauce and raspberry puree.
