It can’t be a coincidence: The next spate of highly-anticipated openings are themed on—if not entirely aimed at attracting—the fairer sex. Following in the high-heeled footsteps of STK (a self-proclaimed female-friendly steak house), and slated to open in December along with She (the restaurant/nightclub replacing Beso/Eve) is Xishi. Pronounced “zai-she,” Xishi by the One Group will offer traditional and contemporary Asian dishes in a modern, vibe-driven space with a feminine twist in the current Little Buddha spot. The change is part of the Palms’ property-wide transformation. Xishi opens next to One Group’s other somewhat feminine-sounding concept, a sports restaurant/lounge called Heraea. The Heraean Games, incidentally, were an ancient Greek women’s athletic competition.
