Photo by myself at The Palm restaurant, on West Street in Tribeca.
The walls of this high end steak house and bar are covered with the likenesses of present-day celebrities.
Hundreds of floating heads provide a backdrop while you eat. As celebs visit the restaurant, they autograph their likenesses.
It's Restaurant Week, once again!
Mark and I dined with old friends at The Palm, a well-known steak house. There are several Palm restaurants, and we opted to visit their Tribeca location.
Restaurants during this time offer special deals to their customers. At The Palm, for a mere $35, you can select from several prix fixe dinners, which include an appetizer, entree and desert.
Both Mark and I had lobster bisque and filet mignon with roasted fingerling potatoes. One of our friends had pineapple gazpacho (!) and grilled mahi mahi. We all had key lime pie for dessert, and as extras, generous side dishes of Monday Night salad (chopped fresh tomatoes, onions, red bell peppers and a tiny bit of anchovies) and creamed spinach.
You still have a few days to enjoy this great deal. Restaurant Week continues through to July 31st. Hundreds of restaurants participate in this twice-yearly event, offering their own special menus.
