You come to Palmeri in Brentwood for excellent food that actually tastes like something, unlike your aunt's lunch order at Coral Tree Cafe. Here you're served a delicious (and complimentary) scorched goat cheese appetizer that's lightyears better than a basket of stale bread sticks. The pasta is fresh, and the pizzas hit the spot. A knockout meal at Palmeri also makes us forget how boring and expensive this place is. The most exciting thing to do here is eavesdrop on the married couple next to you and hear all about their mutual distaste for their chiropractor’s rude receptionist. Expect to spend a pretty penny on a veal chop in a half-empty restaurant, but we still think Palmeri is the best date night option in Brentwood. It’s a good restaurant with adequate noise levels for striking up a conversation.

Jon & Vinny’s second outpost is in Brentwood, and—like the original—has good Italian American food and massive crowds.
