The situation regarding Palm Springs restaurants is a little more complicated for residents than the one I described in the hotels section. We rarely stay in a local hotel (or motel, condo, etc.) since we live here. On the other hand, most of us would be quite happy to eat at any restaurant in the valley every day of the week. The wide variety of menu, atmosphere and price range that exists among Palm Springs restaurants (and those throughout the valley) makes dining out extremely appealing. Even in a vacation paradise however, a person can become broke and flabby if he or she is not careful. So, I’ve narrowed my list of essential dining experiences to a select but very tasty assortment.
