The Palace Grill
A good place for lunch. A bad place for conversation. I’ve been here twice for business, and once for a birthday. On all occasions it was very hard to hold a conversation, and some of those times it wasn’t that crowded.
It’s neat that the staff wear nice jackets and are wonderfully polite. Is this new? The first time I went, our waitress was more of a party girl who kept draping beads on me and my co-workers. Awkward.
I had the crab cakes, which were okay. Accompanying veggies were nicely crisp-tender. An order of beignets went sadly uneaten since we were trying to talk and it’s dangerous to talk with all that powdered sugar flying around.
The lunch menu is perfectly satisfying. Not big, and not small, a respectful portion with an equally respectful price, less than $10.
I’m sure I would have had a better experience if my intent was to party or charm people with my feminine wiles.
