The fourth New York City location of The Palm restaurant opened on Friday in Tribeca. This outpost is located in a luxury condo on 200 Chambers Street, and some residents there are none too thrilled about their proximity to the popular steakhouse. One gripes on the Wired New York board: "The Palm Restaurant is ruining my life...The entire lobby smells of the exhaust of the Palm Restaurant. Also certain hallways in the building and interiors of apts are also complaining about the smell."
Indeed, Curbed has obtained a memo sent to tenants assuring them that "the building's managers met with a team of engineers and other construction experts this morning, and they are investigating the possible source or sources of the odor migration in order to fix the problem. To put this in context, as you know, for some time, the Condo's engineer and architect have been working on the odor migration issues in the building, which have proven to be quite complex."
Anyway, if the engineers can't figure out this "complex odor migration," surely the management company can use the steak aroma as a selling point? As in: 200 Chambers: Come Home and Smell the Palm.
