May's the Steaks

By Erin

The Palm restaurants are celebrating 80 years in business this Monday, May 21, and they're preparing to stuff diners to the gills with Palm-style lunch treats.

For $19.26, after the year the original Manhattan location opened, lunch diners can feast on three courses and a side dish inspired by the caricatures that adorn the chain's walls. Diners have a choice of three salads, two sides (including Caesar salad or Norwegian smoked salmon for "Hagar the Horrible") and three entrees. Main dish options include a rib-eye steak on garlic spinach and olive oil for Popeye and his lady, "The Family Circus"-inspired family-style chicken parmigiana, and wild king salmon for King Features, the distributor of comics like "Zits," "Blondie" and "Baby Blues." Top it all off with a slice of the restaurant's signature cheesecake for dessert. The sides will be creamed spinach or cottage fries. If you can't eat it all, the doggie bag for leftovers is inspired by the pup in "Mother Goose & Grimm."

If you can't make it out for lunch, the Tysons Corner location has a dinner special through the end of the month that offers a New York strip steak and crab legs for two along with two salads and two side dishes for $80. If you and a companion prefer to eat your red meat closer to the District, Ray's the Steaks has been dishing up chateaubriand with your choice of a few soups or salads and mashed potatoes with creamed spinach for $50.

I got to say, I did the deal on Monday at the Palms, and it was terrific. I got the salmon.. my friend got the Chicken Parm (huge) and it was fantastic. The creamed spinach wasn't what I expected, but everything else was great. They didn't have the cheesecake, but let us pick any other dessert. With it usually being around $50 for the meal, it was a great deal (and not super crowded).

Definitely not a stuffy place, either
