The Palm for non-steak eaters

Received a $50 gift card in mail for the Palm, never been before - a menu was included so I have a good idea of what they serve, but what I'm wondering is if it's worth going for someone who doesn't eat steak? (actually just non-grass-fed steaks, but since they don't serve grass-fed beef) Of course there are lambchops (what I'll probably end up ordering if we go) and lobster, though we just stuffed ourselves up to here with lobsters in Maine. What other dishes would you recommend? Or is it worth going at all? Considering yeah, there's $50 gift cert but we probably won't get out before $200 for two. Opinions, please!

    1. Raw oysters and lobster sliders plus drinks at the bar, should use that up nicely. Then wander off for small dinner elsewhere.

      That's how we like The Palm Dallas. I'm sure plates are more $$ in NY.

      1. do they still have the prefix I went they had crab cakes oh my god the gave you 3 nice size cakes and basicly it was all crab meat very little filler best I have ever had, Lobsters are huge and cooked perfect also. They also have great chicken parm.

        1. When I go to the Palm I've always ordered the lobster, and I am a steak eater. Wait until you are in the mood for lobsters again and go there for them. I also second the chicken parm.

            I third the chicken parm. - they are quite famous for it.

          2. They make the best veal parmigiana I've ever had in the city, and I am, from a big Italian family in Bensonhurst, so that is not easy for me to say, but it is true. You get a huge veal chop lightly fried and topped with a delicius sauce and very flavorful mozzarella and other cheeses. I am not a big steak eater either, so when I do go there, for lunch mostly, I do get the veal parmigiana, with a salad and a side dish of asparagus or vegetables. Their potatoes are very good, but I don't allow myself to indulge.
