Almost 90, the Original Palm Will Close in April for an Eight Month Renovation

There may finally be more than two seats at the bar.


Just in time for its 90th birthday, the original Palm steakhouse is getting a makeover. The restaurant will close in April, while the owners put a seven-figure sum towards an upgrade. Tell Crain's NY it "won't be a radical renovation, but we are going to change some of the layout." That layout change may mean fewer booths and more bar seating (there are currently a measly two seats at the bar) and better compliances with the ADA. Some of 20's and 30's-era drawings of famous figures on the wall will also get restored. The restaurant, which already went through a two week renovation last year, should be back up and running by the holidays.
