Fodor's Review

They may have added tablecloths, but it takes more than that to hide the brusque, no-nonsense nature of this legendary steakhouse. The steak is always impeccable, and the Nova Scotia lobsters are so big—three pounds and up—that there may not be room at the table for classic side dishes like rich creamed spinach, served family-style for two or more. The "half-and-half" side combination of cottage-fried potatoes and fried onions is particularly addictive. There are other locations (the original, Palm One, is on 2nd Avenue at East 58th Street, there's one in the mid-50s, one in TriBeCa, and one at JFK Airport), but because of its perch near the Theater District and Midtown businesses, this is the one with the most action.
