Palm London is one in a group of around 30 American owned restaurants started back in New York during the 1920s. The London restaurant is the only Palm outside the States. The feel is very American in the best of ways. Guests to this Belgravia mainstay can expect friendly and attentive service in a low key but upscale setting. Diners here can also safely assume they’ll have an excellent meal whatever the occasion.
Star of the table at Palm London is the steak: New York strip, rump and boneless rib-eye to be precise. Sourced exclusively from Smithfield stalwart – Tom Hixson & Co – and grilled to perfection by Executive Chef Spencer Westcott and his kitchen, the Palm serves gorgeously marbled and tender corn fed, hand selected USDA Prime beef aged for a minimum of 35 days.
But the reasons to choose Palm don’t stop with the steaks. A list of classic and signature cocktails backed up by a tasty and reasonably priced bar menu; a range of satisfying Italian American standards; Nova Scotia lobster; New York style cheesecake; a damn fine wine list with an apparent affection for California; and more fantastic features ensure a cosi fan tutti approach to accommodating any discerning palate.
Smartly situated at 1-3 Pont Street (SW1X 9EJ) the Palm is for all its remarkable qualities still an accessible and welcoming venue and just a short walk away from Knightsbridge and Sloane Square Underground stations as well as some of London’s most highly regarded hotels such as the Mandarin Oriental, the Berkeley, The Lanesborough and the Jumeriah Carlton.
