Dmitri FagelGeneral Manager
Dmitri Fagel underscored his commitment to hospitality when he joined The Palm Los Angeles as General Manager in 2016. “Our staff makes The Palm. They take their work seriously and enjoy what they do, with great warmth and personal attention to detail,” Dmitri says. Shortly after signing on, he commemorated the first 15 years of The Palm Los Angeles by commissioning a special group caricature of those staff members who had been with the restaurant since the opening. For regular guests, The Palm is a part of their life: “We know them and they know us,” as Dmitri puts it. They especially enjoy the “lollipop-style” lamb chop appetizer and a generous Tito’s martini at their home-away-from-home. The Palm Los Angeles hosts an annual mixer for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and is a trusted partner of local charities, sports leagues and university groups.
