The Palm Restaurant inside The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace recently revealed a new look.

The restaurant, which has been a staple in Las Vegas since 1993, was closed during the summer while it underwent a major remodel.

A ceremony to celebrate the remodel took place on Sept. 7. It featured a 21-cork salute and guests were invited to enjoy small plates and champagne after the salute.

Part of the remodel includes a new wall mural depicting the Las Vegas Strip by the restaurant group's artist Zack Bird. The 512-square-foot, hand-painted mural showcases the evolution of Las Vegas from past to present.

The expansive mural was meticulously painted in Bird’s studio in Pennsylvania before being transported the Las Vegas location where it serves as a stunning feature wall. In addition, Bird and his team painted more than 50 celebrity caricatures that cover the walls and include familiar faces such as Céline Dion, Rod Stewart and Reba McEntire. Dating back to the 1920s when the restaurant first opened, the caricatures have become synonymous with The Palm brand.

In addition to changing the look of the restaurant, several new dishes were also added to the much-loved menu. Those dishes include:

  • Four-Cheese Nova Scotia Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese complete with a bacon crust for $13, family-style, or individual portion for $9
  • Coconut Crusted Sea Scallops with watermelon radish and jicama slaw for $18
  • Executive Chef Kiko’s Signature Tenderloin Sandwich with oven-dried tomatoes, baby arugula, pepper jack cheese, Sriracha aioli and sweet potato fries for $19
  • Bone-In Colorado Veal Rib Chop Malfata made with baby arugula, shaved fennel and red onion with a mozzarella di bufala salad for $44
  • Twelve-ounce Australian Wagyu Rib-Eye Steak for $59 along with an assortment of other premium cuts to choose from

The Palm has been owned and operated by members of the Bozzi and Ganzi families since its founding in 1926. The first restaurant was located in New York City. It is now celebrating it's 90th year in business. There are restaurants in Beverly Hills, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia and several other cities.
