Right beside Pub Frato, is the new Nou veau, formerly John Palmers. We went there one night because Frato was packed and we didn't want to wait an hour to be seated at Frato. I have to say this place was very nice, the food...More

My husband has a very discerning palate and ‘Palmer’s’ has been his favorite for many years. Though under new management, the service and quality have stayed consistent. Highly recommended and frequently visited.

We haven't dined here since the new owners took over. If this first experience is what we will enjoy in the future, we will become regulars. Nice to see the enthusiasm in the kitchen which is mostly composed of new staff. Fortunately, the waitstaff remains...More
