Alright everyone, you can chill out now. It turns out the historic Palm Restaurant won't be joining the ranks of Henry's and other historic L.A. restaurants closing their doors after all.

The news that spread throughout the internet community wasn't correct, thankfully for the many loyal customers and fans of the establishment. (This is not to be confused with the famous lesbian bar The Palms, which did in fact close down Pride Weekend.)

"Our commitment to 9001 Santa Monica Blvd is as strong as when we opened in 1975,” said Brianne Carmody-Perea to the WeHo News. As [The Palm] approach[es] our 40th anniversary in LA, we're proud to provide our guests with an unrivaled dining experience at The Palm West Hollywood, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable and distant future.”

We applaud WeHo News for their candid apology on the matter, which stated that they were just trying to get something posted up as quickly as possible due to the crazed pace of Internet news. (We can relate.)
