Renovations of the old are the newest thing in Las Vegas. The Palm Restaurant revealed its new look at the Forum Shops at Caesars on Wednesday. Now it’s Charlie Palmer’s turn. The chef who first opened Charlie Palmer Steak at the Four Seasons in 1999 revealed a new look for his steakhouse.
Palmer worked with local Innovatino designer Nancy Paolino on the new look of the restaurant, inspired by "Nevada’s micro-landscapes." Find large-format black and white metallic photography by Eric Buechel that takes guests from desert to canyon. A new open façade greets guests to the restaurant’s lounge and bar room. There, a 12-seat bar, illuminated by pendant lighting and swaddled in reds, signifies Nevada’s deserts, and in the lounge, Buechel’s photographs illustrate a rocky landscape and Joshua trees.
The main dining rooms feature new carpets and chairs in soft blues with Buechel’s waterfall backdrops on the walls. In the second larger main dining area, the photographs shift from water to canyon, with Paolino’s blown glass chandeliers hanging overhead in both rooms. These two dining rooms, separated by large greenery arrangements, can host groups up to 150.
The restaurant’s largest private dining room features a 48-piece, hand-polished, three-sided crystal chandelier hanging over a 25-seat custom live edge maple table. Another live edge wooden wine station hosts large format bottles from the restaurant’s collection, as well as mixology and cooking demonstrations from the restaurant’s team.
