The Palace: $60 Thursday is back!

Ooo! One night only (and of course I'm busy). But you should go. Kevin and I had an amazing meal at the Palace the last two times they offered this deal and you should really treat yourself.

Not long ago, Julie and I got to interview the new Chef at the Palace, and test drive some new desserts for Pastry Chef Extraordinaire Summer Genetti. Chef Jose Salazar has some great ideas for the restaurant. He's lowered the prices and has created an approachable but classy menu. I'm a picky eater, but there is a lot I would eat on that menu. I've embedded a slideshow of some of my more recent visits to the Palace:

And of course, the desserts. Note that in the photos, some of the desserts have eyes. Summer knows I hate to eat things that look at me … so no worries. You will probably not have cupcakes staring at you. But what good cupcakes they are!

Here's the deal. You and your date each enjoy a two-course meal, plus an amuse bouche to start and mini-pastries that arrive with your check. Dessert was a bonus that seemed to always be wrapped in as well, but no promises on that one. You also get a bottle of wine, and usually there is a decent selection from which to choose. The total – for the two of you and the bottle of wine – is $60, notwithstanding tax and gratuity. Trust me, it's a great opportunity to try a new restaurant that's always been a little intimidating in the past.

I love that this isn't a regular thing, but random and spur-of-the-moment. When you call to make reservations, tell them you read it on Wine-Girl. Reserve your spot by calling 513-381-3000.

The menu for this Thursday night is after the jump:

This Thursday's prix fixe selections include:

First Course

  • Iceberg Wedge pickled red onions, bacon bits and blue cheese dressing
  • Small Farm Greens with oven roasted tomatoes and sherry vinaigrette
  • Soup of the Day

Entrees

  • Organic Salmon with grilled asparagus, roasted fingerling potatoes and hollandaise mouselline
  • Hanger Steak with cauliflower puree, baby carrots, stuffed cipollini onion and sauce bordelaise
  • “Chicken Caesar”: amish chicken breast with parmesan bread pudding, braised romaine hearts, parmesan and black pepper cream, white anchovy and chicken jus

Call 513-381-3000, reservations required. This week the first 10 reservations received will also receive a dessert to share, compliments of Chef Jose Salazar and Pastry Chef Summer Genetti.
