i just returned from a weekend in palm springs. ate at a lovely asian fusian restaurant in the spa resort casino called rappungi. unfortunately, our waitres said they were shutting it in the next two weeks, that the casino crowd wasn't taking to the whole "asian fusion" thing. too bad. she recommended the chop house out of all the steak houses in the area for us on saturday night and she was right, it was fabulous. ass opposed to the usual steakhouse ala carte system, they actually give you a potato or veggie with your steak. good deal. great service and one of the best filets i've had recently.
