Beverly Hills News – The Palm Restaurant To Close In West Hollywood, Relocate To Cañon Dr.
Posted Friday, August 8– 9:55 PM
The Palm Restaurant, announced today the closure of its West Hollywood location, and relocation to 267 N. Cañon Dr. in Beverly Hills.
The new restaurant is slated to open in early November. The 6,000-square-foot restaurant will seat 185, and feature a private dining room. West Hollywood Palm General Manager Tayna Hodge has been named the general manager in the new Beverly Hills location.
Serving its steakhouse cuisine and “Palm-size”portions since 1975, The Palm in West Hollywood is also famous for the caricatures of its celebrity customers and the entertainment industry power players that adorn its walls.
“This Palm has been here for almost 40 years, and while we are sad to leave our home on Santa Monica Boulevard, we are excited to be opening a new Palm just a few minutes away,” said Bruce Bozzi, Jr., great-grandson of Pio Bozzi, who, with John Ganzi, co-founded The Palm in 1926.
It was Wally Ganzi who envisioned bringing The Palm across the country to Los Angeles in 1974. The Palm tapped its own Gigi Del Maestro, a native New Yorker, to travel west and he soon became the maitre’d at the new location, which opened its doors in 1975.
And, what will become of the beloved caricatures on the walls of The Palm? Those depicted will be invited to take home their image.
To celebrate 40 years in West Hollywood, co-owners Wally Ganzi and Bruce Bozzi Sr., along with fourth generation Bruce Bozzi, Jr., will be in the restaurant regularly up until the Sept. 30 closing.
