Escena is a new (last year?) golf club in Palm Springs with modern style, a great view, and quite good food. Three of us had lunch there last week and all thought the food was a "cut above" the usual Palm Springs popular places. The house-made potato chips with a side of aioli were very additive to me, and the burger (cooked perfectly to my specified medium rare) on rye with caramelized onions was one of the best burgers I've had. I guess no place is perfect; I thought the cole slaw was bland. The prices were no more than normal Palms Springs prices for usually-lesser-quality food, to say nothing about the great view from the patio.
