The latest entry into the competitive restaurant/bar market hit the ground running
on June 21 when Palms held its official opening with a packed crowd that lingered
til midnight. Situated at No. 36 Street 214 in what used to the the Khmer-Thai International
Restaurant during the UNTAC days, the project is a joint venture of Simon Parr of
Le Shop fame, John Harper from United Distributors of Cambodia and Chef Nick fresh
from a stint in Vietnam.
Customers will find a bar and lounge area downstairs and a spacious dining area on
the second floor. In several weeks, according to Parr, a delicatessan will open as
well serving cold cuts, cheeses and salads for take-out or outside dining under umbrellas.
The current menu includes a variety of sandwiches, and entrees from Europe, South
Asia, steaks from downunder, or regional specialties. The enterprise is also available
for catering either at your place or theirs.
