Dallas Palm steakhouse to relocate, exit lonely West End location


Once the darling of downtown Dallas steakhouses, the Palm has been shopping for a new, higher profile location for several years. Now it appears the Palm has pulled the trigger and entered into final negotiations on a ground floor space in a new building under construction at 1900 N. Pearl Street.

That’s a prime chunk of real estate in the Dallas Arts District, kitty-corner from Klyde Warren Park on the southeast corner of Woodall Rogers Expressway and N. Pearl.

The building’s developers are said to be longtime Dallas Palm fans — and own the West End building that currently houses the Palm.

This would be a terrific move for the steakhouse. The Palm’s new, modern design at their recently renovated Las Vegas restaurant is a welcome change from the dark wood paneling and cartoons that long characterized the Palm.  And since chef Terry Cook took over the kitchen nearly three years ago, his frequent off-the-menu specials have helped the Palm regain cache.

If the deal closes, progress on the new Palm Dallas would be brisk; we’re told it’s slated to open in 2017. This follows on Monday’s Hatch reveal that a new Argentinian steakhouse is taking over the former Stephan Pyles space on Ross Avenue in downtown. Can Dallas have too many steakhouses?

Not if they’re good ones. Despite what some food writers would like to believe (and beat their drums loudly), Dallas is a steakhouse town.

Big business deals go down often in this city– negotiated, closed and celebrated at the city’s top steakhouses. The Palm wants to be back in that mix.
