Michael Melore

General Manager

Michael Melore joined The Palm in 2010 and trained at three different locations before taking the reins at our storied DC location under the tutelage of the legendary Tommy Jacomo. Some of Michael’s extraordinary staff members have served as touchstones for their extended family of guests and colleagues for three decades. “It feels like home,” Michael says. “If you’re away for 10 or even 15 years and return, it’s as if you never left. Everybody looks at The Palm like it’s their own "Cheers" restaurant.” Michael proudly supports that viewpoint by extending the same warm, family welcome that has been the restaurant’s signature for over 45 years. The Palm Washington DC hosts many local and national charity events, including decades of annual parties for news anchor Paul Berry’s National Center for Children and Families Golf Tournament benefiting DC’s Neediest Kids Program.
