The Silver Palm drips with cash and cachet, with a model waitstaff and chic clientele. One section faithfully replicates a classic English country library (perfect for civilized, proper afternoon tea or a pre- or post-dnner champagne or single malt). The other forms Taikun, a sensuous sushi spot clad mostly in black, with a popular public table. Also on tap: fab cocktails, including specialty martinis (the Silver Palm cosmopolitan is a winner—Ketel One citron, triple
sec, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and a splash of cranberry topped off with Moët champagne); pages of wines by the glass; and an impressive list of cigars, cognacs, and aged drums.
