The Palm Restaurant Group announced that veteran Palm executive, Christopher Gilman, has been rehired and named as the General Manager of their distinguished location in the Tribeca area of New York City.

Gilman returns to The Palm with a resume steeped in experience from some of the most premier restaurants in New York City. Prior to his return, Gilman was the Owner/Operating Partner and General Manager for the highly respected Latin American restaurant, Yerba Buena Perry (YBP) in Manhattan. YBP is consistently rated as one of the top restaurants in New York and much of that success is attributed to Gilman’s leadership.

Prior to his tenure at YBP, Gilman was the Regional Director of Operations and General Manager for The Palm Restaurant Group at The Palm Westside location. It was at this location where Gilman built lifelong relationships with customers and teammates, resulting in the restaurant’s overwhelming success, securing the chain’s number two position in the company.

“We are excited to welcome Christopher back to The Palm family in New York, as he brings tremendous experience in customer service, operations and quality oversight as the new General Manager in the Tribeca area,” says Jeff Phillips, chief operating officer. “For over 90 years, The Palm has distinguished itself among steakhouses by creating close-knit relations with our customers and our teams, and it all starts with our General Manager at each location.”

The Palm Tribeca in New York City (located on the corner of the West Side Highway at Warren Street) is just steps from the Financial District, the Hudson River and Battery Park. It serves the same clientele that The Palm is noted to attract: multi-generational families, friends, high-powered executives, celebrities and political heavyweights. “For more than 90 years, The Palm has maintained a reputation for exemplary dining in an impressive, yet comfortable atmosphere and I am thrilled to be a part of the family once again,” says Gilman. “I am looking forward to meeting and offering our customers the great service and fine cuisine that they have come to expect from The Palm.”

Known for their signature dishes including Prime Aged Steak and Whole Nova Scotia Lobsters, the menu also includes The Palm’s renowned Italian fare including Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Martini and Baked Clams Casino and an award-winning wine list.

The Palm’s philosophy is simple: Treat guests like family, serve great food, and always exceed expectations. Owned and operated by members of the Bozzi and Ganzi families since the company’s founding in 1926, The Palm serves as a second home for countless patrons across the United States and abroad. The Palm is still owned by the same two families. Celebrating its 90th year, The Palm continues its legacy as a favorite gathering place and dining destination for families, friends and business colleagues alike.
