The Palm restaurant is the oldest family-owned white tablecloth restaurant to expand across the United States and still maintain family ownership. Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi's original New York City steak house on Second Avenue is now a thriving empire of 18 restaurants spanning the Americas from East Hampton, New York, to Los Angeles. From coast to coast, people know that the Palm is synonymous with prime steaks and outrageously outsized lobsters. What many don't realize is that the Palm is thoroughly family-bred. It has been run by the sons and now by the grandsons of both founding partners. Walk into the Palm, and you are joining a party that's been going strong for three generations. You are welcomed with a smile, and before you know it, you're raising a glass, swept up and away by the spirit of the place. The Chicago Palm has taken the windy city by storm with their exceptional service and mouthwatering dishes. Located in the luxurious Swissotel, the Chicago Palm opened its doors in 1980 to much success. It has long been a favorite to Chicago, regulars include members of the Chicago Bulls and Bears as well as Chicago's political notables.
