The Palm Restaurant, Las Vegas - Las Vegas
After all these years--since 1926--The Palm has continued to be family owned. The Italian-focused steakhouse concept boasts a large number of locations throughout the globe, and this Vegas outpost is one of the shining stars.
It's been, in fact, completely overhauled with renovations in the dining room as well as private dining spaces. Located in the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace, it's been around since 1993 and attracts local and visitor movers and shakers.
The restaurant originally started off as an Italian eatery in 1926 when owners and Italian natives Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi wanted to pay homage to their hometown of Parma, Italy.
When customers constantly requested steaks, they had to run to a nearby butcher's shop to keep their customers happy. They eventually, of course, put steaks and chops on the menu and the restaurant soon became known as one of New York's best steakhouses.
From 5-7pm Sunday through Friday, The Palm features a happy hour, where bar bites such as a classic cheeseburger, cornmeal-fried oysters and calamari are sold half price.
