Many, several, and some (but not none) have posted wondering who the hell my pal Bruce is. I have written about us at the Oscars, Emmys, in Paris, and at the Palm, but there's more. His great grandfather Pio Bozzi co-founded the Palm Restaurant on 2nd Avenue between 44th and 45th street in 1926. Now Bruce Bozzi, Jr. is EVP of the Palm Restaurant Group, supervising 29 Palaces of Steak across the country. He is a ton of fun and has blue eyes like diamond jacuzzis.
BRUCE, YOU ARE THE SCION OF THE PALM RESTAURANT FAMILY AND NOW SPEND MUCH OF YOUR TIME LORDING OVER ALL OF THEM. DO YOU LACE THE STEAK WITH SOME SORT OF XANAX TO GET PEOPLE COMING BACK?
Yes, we do. Andy, how am I supposed to answer that?
WELL, WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING, PALM-MANIA CONTINUES TO OVERTAKE AMERICA. AND I BET YOU'RE NEAR A PALM RIGHT NOW? DONDE ESTAS, BRUCE?
I am in Tampa, Florida, sweetie.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE AT THE PALM AND WHEN?
Easy. Tonight I had a mixed green salad with a 12 ounce NY prime aged steak. I had hash browns, creamed spinach, and sauteed asparagus AND I had a sliver of the best carrot cake you'll ever eat and several glasses of red wine. An Italian red. Does that answer your question?
