One of Tom Douglas' harder to classify restaurants, the Palace is known for its upscale 'New American' cuisine, late-night happy hour and cool cocktail scene. Food-wise, it's especially good for its Applewood grill items, including trout and rotisserie chicken, although the menu also nurtures some fine Italianate features; try the plin, a Piedmontese-style ravioli.

This is an ideal place to come if you want to eat late. Late-night happy hour starts at 11pm (Sunday to Thursday) and includes small plates such as chicken wings ($6), plus drink specials.
