Palm Springs- a hidden gem

Carnivoracious | Jan 25, 2014 10:03 PM

Coming from SF/ Oakland we often get to dine at great restaurants. Now when visiting the Palm Springs area we have a restaurant that competes with the best the Bay Area has to offer-- Dish Creative Cuisine. The restaurant was not much to look at but the food was the star. The kitchen sends out multiple amuse bouches that were fun, inventive and delicious. Instead of bread service, warm savory donuts were provided. On this night, sun dried tomato and thyme flavors with a olive tapenade butter were featured. Every table also received a fried mozzarella puff, a sea bass ceviche with avocado mousse, a black bean tostada with duck confit, a sorbet of ginger beer and lime, and lemon basil ice cream pop ups. I would have been happy eating only the amuse bouches. But, we enjoyed excellent entrees too. A lobster spaghetti with saffron cream sauce and a oven roasted salmon that was memorable because it was so tender and flavorful. Other tables in this small restaurant were enjoying meat dishes that had the look of something unusual and decadent. The wine list was small but well designed. And the service was attentive. Not sure is she does it every night but the chef visited every table and seemed to enjoy discussing her beautifully designed food. Skip Trio and give this place a try.
