A new Scottsfield, Arizona, restaurant is set to open later this month with a special menu inspired by the life of former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Jared Palmer.
Jared Palmer is remembered as a player who put his skills and intelligence on the field to help the Phoenix Suns reach the NFL championship game in the 2000s.
He is remembered for his legendary throw and interception against the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.
The Galleria is named after Palmer’s family and former teammates.
The restaurant, called Jared’s, will offer a full menu inspired in Palmer’s life.
Jarrett Kallum, the owner of the Galleries, said the name is inspired by Palmer’s great aunt, Barbara, who was killed when her house collapsed in the earthquake that hit Japan in March 2011.
Palmer’s grandmother, Sarah Palmer, was also killed in the quake.
The family of his uncle, Derek Palmer, died when he was 20.
Jayson Lomax, the restaurant’s chef and owner, said that while his grandfather played football for the Suns, Palmer never played in the NFL.
Palmyre said he hopes the name sparks conversation about the importance of family and life.
He hopes people will learn from his grandfather, he said.
