The Palm, a twenty year old Denver institution with locations in multiple cities, is reopening today at 11 a.m. after being closed for a major remodel since February. An open floor plan and contemporary feel, complete with a large bar with booths and high top tables, three private dining spaces that open into one large space, and new art are part of the updated look of the Downtown staple.
The 6,034 square foot restaurant can seat up to 220 guests and includes a patio with a fire pit and warmers that seats an additional 40 guests. Local artist Paul Vismara was commissioned to work on the new caricatures while the large Colorado-based wall mural was created by artist Zach Bird.
"We are so excited to introduce the new Palm Denver to our devoted diners and to new guests as well," said Bruce Bozzi, Jr., executive vice president and fourth-generation owner. "Through our remodel we kept the Palm's signature elements, like the caricatures on the walls and menu favorites, but we also wanted to make sure we keep our restaurants fresh to connect with the next generation of diners."
Set in the Westin Denver Downtown hotel, the Palm is known for its prime aged steaks, seafood including signature jumbo lobster, and classic Italian-American fare like Chicken Parmigiana and Veal Marsala. The revamped menu, which still includes classic favorites, brings new dishes like the ahi tuna tataki, crispy kale salad, and a bison burger.
The restaurant serves lunch on weekdays and dinner seven nights a week.
