NYC Guide: Palma

Jun 12 2014

Palma is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It’s located in the West Village and is “a traditional Italian restaurant that stays true to generations of family recipes and techniques.” What made me initially fall in love with Palma was the decor – I’m a sucker for nice settings. And the flowers! They have SO many flowers.

Palma has three separate dining areas – a front room with a bar, a garden-like room (which is outside!) with flowers galore and ivy covered walls, and there’s also a separate room all the way in the back for private parties. (This last room had my jaw dropping when I first saw it).
The front room and bar.
The outdoor garden.
This back room KILLS me. Absolutely perfect. It’s set up in an old house with an antique kitchen. Such a gorgeous space. I’m dying to have a special occasion here..maybe my next birthday!
The food at Palma is right up to par with the decor – maybe even better. They have standard Italian dishes, but everything has a rich, homemade twist, as the restaurant is family-owned, and they put some of their own secrets into the cooking. Everything is phenomenal.

You can check out Palma’s full menu here; if you go for dinner, try the “Insalata di Barbabietole” as an appetizer – one of my favorites. I’ve never been for brunch, but it’s on my list of things to do this summer!
Do yourself a favor and head there sooner rather than later. I promise you will not regret it.
