The Palm

9650 E. Bay Harbor Drive Surfside, FL 33154 | North Dade | 305-868-7256

Location Description:

The floors are bare wood, the walls wainscoted with ivory-colored tin, the ambiance so unpretentious that first-timers are often heard to say, "Are you sure this is the Palm?" Actually the Palm is a historic New York steak house from the Roaring Twenties, but over the past decade a dozen more have opened up across the nation. Bay Harbor's branch serves the same food as the rest: Huge, sweet lobsters (they start at four pounds), prime aged steaks, and traditional steak-house side dishes that the Palm helped define, like lyonnaise potatoes, fried onions, a GiGi salad of rock shrimp and green beans, and the best creamed spinach in town. Cheesecake is flown in daily from New York, as if you'll have the room to try it.
