Palace Kitchen

I had to drag my wife here, because we had a 9-year-old in tow, and she'd gotten the idea that it was kind of fancy from the reviews. It's not--it's really casual, almost funky, and the waiter was very nice and accomodating to our daughter. Food was spectacularly good. Oysters on the half-shell were pristine, perfectly shucked. Olive poppers were great, except that I wanted about 10 more orders. Pork jowl bruschetta with green garlic: yum. House-made soppresata was submlime. Brandade ravioli! We just ate appetizers.
