My husband and I took our first trip to Palm Springs last week, and loved it. Had a wonderful, romantic, elegant but not stuffy meal at the fabled Melvyn's at the Ingleside Inn. Tableside Steak Diane, and the best pour and service we've seen in years. Loved it. Also really enjoyed the ChopHouse -- filet mignon Oscar, french onion soup, great a/c (which we came to find out, read on, is very important in P.S. in August). Best deal in town is Matchbox Pizza's Happy Hour food and drink specials. We gorged ourselves on wonderful wood fired pizza ($6/pizza) and pork sliders (3 for $1 each). We also had great breakfasts at Sherman's Deli and Elmer's. (Elmer's is a little dated, and it's a N/W chain, but it has a very creative menu in addition to the usual breakfast suspects.) The one bummer food experience was Zin American Bistro. The french onion soup was inedible. The restaurant was stiflingly hot. We canceled the rest of our order and left.
