Long, long ago, when I was still a youngster, I worked for Cheryl Ladd as her personal assistant. I loved Cheryl and her husband Brian Russell. One of the perks of working for this lovely Charlie's
Angel was that we frequently got to eat at the original Palm on Santa Monica and did so right underneath her picture. Last night was a bit of nostalgia for me and my husband, as once again we dined under Cheryl's picture, in the new and improved
Palm on Canon in Beverly Hills. Looking down on us from across the room was Farrah Fawcett-Majors and The Six-Million Dollar Man (Lee Majors) which made for some mighty fine dining conversation. With or without the angels, The Palm is five star all the way.
Our server, Heather, has been with The Palm for quite a while and has the perfect personality to work with the crowd that hangs out here. She was funny, outgoing and very knowledgable about everything on the menu. We started with a great glass of wine and
beer then moved on to the fantastic Wedge Salad ($14). So the wedge is just a wedge, right? Wrong. Not when Danish blue cheese, bacon, cherry tomatoes, chives and fried onions star in the show! The dressing is remarkable with big chunks of blue cheese
and hands down is my favorite wedge in this city! Enjoy with warm pumpernickel, wheat, or sourdough bread and sweet butter. I had them all. The Filet Mignon ($51) was 14 ounces of pure bliss. USDA prime beef is corn-fed, hand-selected and aged a
minimum of 35 days. The marbling in this beef makes it so tender, juicy, and flavorful. Topped with olive oil, kosher salt, and parsley butter, it doesn't get any better than this. The sides are incredible too. I am in love with Asparagus Fritti ($13). Tender
spears are fried with lemon garlic butter and are definitely one of my favorite things on the menu. Three Cheese Potatoes Au Gratin ($13) are not far behind. For dessert we enjoyed the deep dark intense 7 Layer Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache. To say
we were full would be an understatement. To say we had the perfect meal would not. Go see for yourself! We love The Palm! The Palm Restaurant 267 North Canon Drive Beverly Hills (310) 550-8811. Hours: Mon-Fri: 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Mon-Sat. 5 p.m.-11p.m. Sun
