A look inside: The Palm San Diego

Nick and I were invited by Cathy DeLeon to visit The Palm restaurant in San Diego and what a treat it was. The Palm has been an institution since the 1920s when the first opened in New York. While it is technically a chain, you certainly don't get that feeling.

The restaurant has some great upstairs space for events, an almost Manhattan-style piano bar feeling, and some fun caricatures on the walls. The restaurant is the perfect setting for birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, corporate gatherings, and even the right wedding.

The Palm might just have the best happy hour in downtown San Diego. From 4:30-6:30pm weekdays and 9pm til.....all prime bites are $3.50/ea - the ultimate chicken strips - not what you're thinking! These were pretty premium! Also try the mini broiled crab cakes, Kobe beef sliders, and the prime cheesesteak. All delicious and what a great price. For drinks, be sure to taste the Upper East Side Sidecar or something lighter - the French Twist (with my favorite, St-Germain).

Located in the heart of downtown San Diego, the close proximity to hotels, the stadium, and the convention center, makes The Palm a great destination for diners.
They have this awesome customer loyalty program as well. The more you dine and host parties, the closer you work towards having your own painting up on the wall; pretty fun! Be sure to tell them we sent you! Being a steak house, their food and desserts are true steak house fare - sides come family-style, desserts are oversized (and all look great!), and the steaks are prime!
