roots and naming of Andrei Caciula as its new general manager.

“Atlanta is an incredible market with a vibrant business community, thriving entertainment industry and robust sports scene,” said Bruce Bozzi Jr., fourth generation family member and executive vice president.

“Our new design will reflect the sophistication of Atlanta and retain The Palm’s essence, which is warm, welcoming and inviting,” Bozzi added.

The refreshed Palm Restaurant continues to embrace the restaurant’s 89-year commitment to service and quality with the same menu.

The new design is anchored by a hand-painted feature wall that overlooks the dining room and highlights Atlanta’s landmarks.

There is seating for 240 guests (an increase of 40 seats), including two private dining rooms called the Boardroom and Executive Room with capacity to serve 36 guests; two semi-private dining rooms – the Buckhead Room, which accommodates up to 70 guests and features panoramic views of Peachtree Road and Buckhead’s skyline; and the Peachtree Room — all with new audio-video systems and three TVs.

In addition, there is a new expansive bar that opens to the lobby of the Westin Buckhead Hotel, complete with the Prime Time menu of Small Plates, Prime Bites and an extensive list of

hand-crafted cocktails.

In Palm Restaurant style, there will be a fresh new array of signature caricatures created by Zack Bird, an artist whose family has created caricatures for Palm Restaurants for several decades and who himself has created Palm caricatures, artwork and feature walls for the other refreshed Palm locations.

Working with an Atlanta artist, Bird began hand painting caricatures of loyal diners and bold-faced Atlanta dignitaries, sports stars, entertainers and business people and the walls of new faces will grow organically over time.

A tradition that was started at the onset when the owners had no money to decorate and relied on a large clientele of cartoonists who traded art for meals, the caricatures will once again be painted directly onto the walls the way they were installed in the beginning.

      The new caricature artists name is Tony Smith. He draws the caricatures on the walls of the Palms Atlanta.

      Tony Smith has won several Awards for his artistic abilites. He is excited about the opportunity to fill the restaurant with new faces. Zack Bird gave Tony a few tips and passed the torch to him before he left the scene.
      We appreciate Zack and his work is truely inspiring.

      Thanks
