    If you go to the White Slab Palace, beware of the moose head.

    A restaurant-goer says she was struck by the decor at a Manhattan eatery -- but not in a visual way.

    Raina Kumra says in a negligence lawsuit filed last week that a stuffed moose head plummeted off a wall and onto her head at the Scandinavian-themed White Slab Palace on Oct. 4. She says she suffered a concussion and other injuries after being hit by the 150-pound moose head, adorned with 3-foot-wide antlers.

    The owner of the Lower East Side restaurant didn't immediately return a telephone message. Nor did Kumra, who is representing herself in the case.

    She's seeking unspecified damages. The lawsuit was filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.
