Christopher Swatt

General Manager
The Palm recruited General Manager Chris Swatt fresh out of Paul Smith’s College in 1986, which afforded him the opportunity to be mentored early in his career by Palm legends John Blandino in Chicago and Gigi Delmaestro in Los Angeles. Chris is a proud father and avid sports fan – a former New York State Basketball official with a passion for golfing. Chris beams, saying “Our guests will tell you Palm Too is a legendary New York restaurant with unbelievable food and great service. Everybody leaves with a smile.” Regulars know to ask the staff – many of them 30-year-plus old timers – for off-menu, historic dishes like Shrimp Bruno or Chopped Tomatoes and Onions, and can often be found packing the bar while catching up on the latest with Chris and the rest of their Palm family.
