Fodor's Review

A favorite lunchtime hangout of power brokers, from politics to media, the Palm has walls papered with caricatures of the famous patrons who have dined there. Main attractions include gargantuan steaks and Nova Scotia lobsters, several kinds of potatoes, and New York cheesecake. One of the Palm's best-kept secrets is that it's also a terrific old-fashioned Italian restaurant—try the veal marsala—and a surprisingly affordable downtown business-lunch option.
