Just returned from a weekend in the desert. Once again Chowhound came through.
We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Wilma and Frieda. The highlight for me was their New England Clam Chowder. I rarely find the red chowder on the West Coast and it's even rarer that it's this delicious. Their turkey club salad was excellent as well.
Dinner at Copley's was perfect. We sat on the lovely patio. Our waiter was terrific and the food was spot on. Their New York steak was the best steak I have had in quite some time. I wold love to find a similar restaurant in L A.
Sunday brunch at Lulu was surprisingly good. I had heard mixed things but it looked like a fun place for breakfast. I had scrambled eggs with Boursin cheese and I now want to try this at home. My husband had corned beef hash and said it was fantastic. The only mediocre meal was at Roc's Firehouse in Palm Desert. We wanted something quick and easy before our ride back but the service was the worst and the food was pretty bad. Roc's Firehouse was NOT a Chowhound recommendation. All in all a fun weekend filled with delicious food. Thank You Chowhound!
