PAUL SMITHS — Summer's in full swing, and that means The Palm at Paul Smith's College is open for business.
The student-training restaurant features a menu inspired by the legendary Palm steakhouses, including steaks, seafood and other classic fare.
Located in Cantwell Hall, the restaurant seats 32 and is lined with framed caricatures, much like the décor at the Palm.
Paul Smith's has deep ties with one of the Palm's co-owners; Wally Ganzi graduated from Paul Smith's in 1963 before starting at the Palm, which was partly owned by his family.
When Ganzi began at the Palm, there was one location in New York City. Under his watch, the restaurant grew to 28 locations across the United States, as well as in Mexico City and London.
The Palm at Paul Smith's is the second student-run restaurant on campus. The St. Regis Café, located in the Joan Weill Student Center, serves lunch Monday through Friday and a dinner buffet on Wednesday evenings.
The Palm at Paul Smith's College will be open Fridays and Saturdays for dinner until Saturday, Aug. 16. Dinner will be served starting at 5:30 p.m., with the last seating at 8:30 p.m.
Reservations are required at both restaurants. Reach The Palm at 327-6443 and St. Regis Cafe at 327-6355.
