The Palm Restaurant

The Palm Restaurant - Washington

The first-ever Palm restaurant opened in New York City in 1926, but it wasn't until George H.W. Bush encouraged them to expand that the owners started opening additional locations. When he was an ambassador, Bush encouraged them to bring their “good American fare” to D.C., and the expansion took off from there.

Soon after establishing themselves as a favorite Italian eatery, owners and Italian natives Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi fielded many requests from customers for steak entrees. They had to run to a nearby butcher's shop to keep their customers happy.

They eventually, of course, put steaks permanently on the menu and the restaurant soon became known as one of New York's best steakhouses. The menu showcases classic Italian dishes, steaks and chops and seafood. The Italian-inspired dishes have been around since the beginning, including family recipes of chicken parmigiana, veal marsala and veal parmigiana.
