A successful restaurateur in Linwood, New Jersey, chef Luke Palladino opened Palladino's on Passyunk in December at the intersection of Broad Street and Passyunk Avenue. The 2,450-square-foot space has a dining room and bar area that seats 80 guests. The outside area seats an additional 40 guests, making it one of the largest restaurants in the East Passyunk area. The decor mixes modern and classic styles, with dramatic black and white elements, pops of color, exposed steel, original artwork, a striking chandelier, Italian slate tiles, and an open kitchen. There are four 60-inch HD smart TVs that can be used to display photos, DVDs, or videos, and 21 built-in speakers can play sound from multiple sources.
