Born Again, Better This Time
My, how Little Palace has changed. When I used to work downtown, this was a little hole in the wall cafe, well off the beaten path, serving mediocre Greek and American food to people unwilling to walk too far for lunch. It's still well off of the beaten path, but the food is now fresh and delicious, since the recent redo by the same folks that brought you Rossi's and Club 185.
The place is pretty much the same configuration, keeping the landmark neon sign of old and a little bit of the old vibe for authenticity, but all new furniture, a rock and roll art-deco decor, with a great jukebox and big bar. The old sign can throw you off - this is definitely not a diner, or old school cafe.
Next door to the successful Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace, Little Palace is an excellent complement. The menu is mostly pizzas, strombolis,sandwiches, subs, salads. Prices are pretty cheap - my Italian sub was $7, and absolutely delicious. It was packed with meat, melted cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and hot peppers, and a great Italian dressing. Not sure I'd want to go back to a business meeting after this sandwich, but this is one of the best Italians in Columbus - tons of flavor. Other dishes like pizza can get you into the $12 category, but that's about as expensive as it gets.
There is a large bar,extensive list of cocktails, and an especially nice beer selection. Happy hour is every day, and there is a late night crowd as well.
Overall, this is a substantial upgrade from the old Little Palace, with a more upscale and younger crowd, and great pub-like food in a fast casual format. Very well done.
