Are you a self-described foodie? Does your palette do the picking when it comes to creating your travel plans? Then you'd better make sure to head into Palm Desert for a few gastronomic adventures during your trip to Palm Springs.
Palm Desert is home to a wide range of restaurants, from high-end, fine fining experiences to local favorites serving the tried and true. You'll find many noteworthy restaurants on the noted shopping street of El Paseo. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck debuted his first West Coast pizza cafe here in 2013, and locals love Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar for its scratch kitchen, fresh ingredients and focus on sustainability. Down the street, Mastro's Steakhouse offers some of the finest beef cuts in the desert with an Old Hollywood dining room to match. And if you can't make up your mind, Mitch's on El Paseo serves up everything from fine sushi rolls to steaks, making it easy to please large groups with such a varying menu.
For a Mediterranean-inspired lunch with a French flair, don't miss Clementine's or Cafe des Beaux-Art. Clementine's is home to some of the desert's freshest breads, pastries and paninis, while Cafe des Beaux-Art offers impeccable croque monsieurs and a patio on El Paseo that can't be beat.
