Palms Up

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.
