The Palm Restaurant Philadelphia, located in The Bellevue at 200 S. Broad Street, will be undergoing a major renovation this year.
Very important to note: Last day of business before construction is Monday, February 29. They will not be re-opening until late in the fourth quarter of 2016, or early 2017. So, if you love The Palm Restaurant, you better make your reservations before the end of the month!
The new design will feature intimate seating for 152 and a striking hand-painted feature wall of Philadelphia’s famous landmarks overlooking the dining room. A new expansive bar will anchor the dining room and will offer the Prime Time menu of Small Plates, Prime Bites and an extensive list of handcrafted cocktails. The Private Dining Room will be relocated to the main level of the restaurant with seating for up to 36 and will feature a state-of-the-art audio visual system.
In true Palm Restaurant style, there will be a fresh new array of signature caricatures produced in association with Zack Bird, a Philadelphia artist whose family has created caricatures for Palm Restaurants for several decades. Bird himself has created Palm caricatures, artwork and feature walls for other refreshed Palm locations. This tradition started at the restaurant’s onset when the owners had no money to decorate and relied on a large clientele of cartoonists who traded art for meals. The caricatures at The Palm Philadelphia will once again be painted directly onto the walls just as they were in the beginning.
