We went to Palace at the Ben last night for a pre-theater meal. The service and decor are wonderful, but we were underwhelmed by the food and it was expensive for what you get (dinner for two was $100 included 1 app, 2 entrees, 2 breads, 1 dessert, 4 drinks). The best item we ordered was the eggplant appetizer and some kind of bread stuffed with onions. The entrees, tandoori chicken and lamb with eggplant, were just ok and nothing to write home about. Place was half empty and I am not sure how it is surviving.
