Our Favorite Lunch Deal in Las Vegas: Palm Restaurant

Palm Restaurant calls it the “Three Course Power Lunch,” but this blog calls it heaven.

Although you might be more familiar with The Palms hotel-casino, this is unrelated to that. Palm restaurant is in the The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, and its prix fixe lunch menu is one of the best lunch deals in Las Vegas. And by extension, the world.

This is where they keep the OMFG.

Doing a prix fixe lunch means your choices are narrowed down for you. Thankfully, Palm narrows down the options to either “fantastic” or “incredible,” and all for one reasonable price of $25.90, especially considering the quality and quantity of the food.

The fresh bread isn’t technically one of the three courses, but it gets your lunch off to a fine start.

“Don’t fill up on bread,” we said, knowing full well you’re going to fill up on bread.

The first course officially begins with a choice of mixed green salad, a classic Caesar or the Chef’s Soup of the Day.

Nothing too fancy, but tasty, nonetheless.

The meat of the meal is the entree, and the second course is a choice of chicken parmigiana, filet mignon medallions, an Atlantic salmon fillet (with roasted red pepper sauce and mango salsa) or a Fish Special of the Day.

We went with the manhole-sized chicken parm, of course, as it is the measure of any great restaurant. Yes, even the sushi places.

Voted best chicken parmigiana on the Las Vegas Strip. By, you know, this blog.

There’s an option to upgrade the filet mignon to Crabmeat Oscar (just $5 more), making it extra surf-and-turfy.

This dish alone could easily run $40-50 elsewhere on The Strip.

As if all this food weren’t enough, the prix fixe menu also comes with a side dish, including a vegetable of the day or linguini marinara.

Bonus: Signature cocktails, with names like the Palm Punch, Double Cross Mule, Palm Sunrise and the Pucker Up Lemon Drop.

Not included, but sort of required. It’s Las Vegas.

Just when you think you’ve hit the wall, there’s more. The dessert course is either a monster-sized slice of New York-style cheesecake or a flourless chocolate cake.

The waiter brought this to our table on a forklift.

The service is great, and the restaurant’s patio is prime real estate for people-watching, too.

Our answer to the question: “Does it feel like I’m eating in a mall?”
