The Palace restaurant continues to serve its iconic green goddess salad dressing, created at the hotel in 1923 by executive chef Phillip Roemer. The dressing is made of mayonnaise, chives, parsley, minced anchovy, lemon juice and more and was first introduced during a banquet in honor of lead actor George Arliss. He had headlined William Archer's hit play, The Green Goddess, which lends the salad and dressing their name.
