Hidden behind plain white plywood, work on the complete remodel of The Palm Restaurant at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is well underway, with new renderings and photographs of interior work pointing to a fair justification for the estimated $1,556,165 in construction expenses.
The 7,344-square-foot project is officially aiming to feature "clean lines and warm decor," with the new look hinting it will follow recent facelifts for the nationwide brand that include a lounge, leather seated booths and "more realistic portraits" decorating the room. The Palm is noted for filling their restaurants with caricatures of the well-known and well-bred.
The renderings point to a renewed emphasis on the bar and lighter coverings for the chairs, replacing the hard and darker wood chairs of the past.
Promising an early September return, OpenTable is now accepting reservations for evening service on Sept. 12, the earliest date available.
A firm favorite of conventioneers, The Palm is famed for oversized Nova Scotia lobsters and their reliable steaks. Life-long Palm employee Kiko Ojeda has been executive chef in Las Vegas since 2005.
Any local celebrities or dignitaries that earned a caricature on the restaurant walls should take note the new upgrades are not preserving all of the artwork.
