According to a reliable tipster, the Palace Steak House redux was lit, open and hosting diners during a soft-opening of sorts last night. Fans will remember the original Palace Steak House (not to be confused with the indie rock band of the same name) experienced a heart-breaking shutter in 2009. So news that's it's resurfaced with the same endearing, reasonably priced steak options ($13.99 NY steak with baked potato, iceberg lettuce salad, and garlic bread) has been relatively well received. Our sources flesh things out a bit, mentioning spaghetti Bolognese, hamburgers, pizza (priced at $24.75 for a large), and Middle Eastern things like chicken shawerma also make an appearance on the menu. According to Yelp, the interior has also been "de-grunged," [see image] and they'll be open until 3 a.m. "for the drunk people" once things get rolling.
In the not-so-great news department, vegetarians get two lone (late 90's) options: mozzarella sticks and a pita/hummus appetizer. As of last night, the former sign is gone, so anyone who passes the location and happens to see new paint going up, feel free to drop a photo in the tip jar.
