768 Fifth Ave., The Plaza Hotel, New York, NY 10019, United States

The relaunch in 2010, following a 15-month hiatus, aims to make the Palm Court more friendly and modern, dropping the jacket requirement and silencing the live harp. Still, the beloved room with its tall palms, marble columns, and stained-glass laylight ceiling (revealed in 2008 after a $6.5 million renovation) remains largely the same. The menu treads lightly on tradition, adding to a classic Plaza tiered tea tray Fleisher’s organic roast beef on a pretzel roll and a tiny black-and-white cookie—whimsical touches that should attract new patrons without compromising the Palm Court’s venerable identity.
