Dining in the desert beyond Palm Springs

MC Slim JB | Jan 4, 2006 03:40 PM

The more I dig into fine dining options in the Indian Wells/Rancho Mirage/Desert Palm/La Quinta area, the more nervous I get. I'm starting to think I can only be disappointed by the high end here. Research suggests that the fancy places mostly cater to middlebrow tourists and an older crowd that favor 60s- and 70s-vintage ideas of fine dining.

Okay, so how about low- and mid-priced options favored by locals? Any truly authentic Mexican? Other options that aren't pricey French, Cal/French, or five-star resort dining?
