4.5/5

It’s a lovely Saturday afternoon in The Big Apple and a great time to meet a group of friends at The Palm Midtown (AKA The Palm West ) for an afternoon brunch. The restaurant stands at 250 West 50th Street between 7th and 8th Avenue near the Gershwin Theatre. Since the 1920s, it has been a fixture in New York City’s dynamic Theatre District and a natural dining choice before or after a show. It’s a hot spot for opening night parties, serving visitors from local and international origins.

The Palm hosts their Landry’s Club, a dining membership with perks including your visage caricature installed on their restaurant wall. This might work for me!

According to The Palm, their “legendary tradition of caricatures originated in 1920s New York, when some of its first patrons – talented cartoonists from the nearby King Features Syndicate – virtually paid for their supper in original art on the walls of The Palm’s first restaurant; then a speakeasy. These artists would draw lively scenes of the restaurant’s clientele – neighbors, family, and celebrity patrons – that came to be known as the hieroglyphics of New York City life at the time.”

I ordered a grilled chicken cobb salad with romaine and iceberg lettuce, grilled chicken, tomatoes, green bean, avocado, eggs, bacon, and Danish blue cheese in a garlic vinaigrette on the side. Enjoyable indeed!

Next time I’ll try one of their specialty steaks.
