The sunny golden walls of this intimate, 18-table restaurant seem to reflect the south of France rather than the Austrian origin of its owner and head chef, Johannes Bacher. No matter how unusual the combination, Johannes brings it all together in a beautifully presented meal. Yellow beets as an appetizer? In balsamic syrup and an Austrian pumpkin seed sauce, it is sublime. Lobster in the mashed potatoes? It is a perfect accompaniment to the crispy Atlantic salmon. There is an extensive by-the-glass wine list and an exceptional variety of imported and domestic beers.
Fisherman's Market & Grill is the best fish market you'll find in landlocked Palm Springs. Insisting on only the freshest fish available, Fisherman's takes daily trips to dockside fish markets in order to maintain their discerning standards. The menu is populated almost exclusively by seafood, although the grill offers "land lubber" options of typical steak and chicken. The highlights here are contained on the chalkboard special, a lineup of twenty two different kinds of fish, each with a particular cooking method to ensure the quality fish shines through its complements. Consistently ranked as one of the best fish markets in the area, Fisherman's Market & Grill is perfect for those seeking an oceanic oasis in the midst of Palm Springs.
Shanghai Reds lies behind its charming sister restaurant Fisherman's Market, tempting visitors in with the aromas of fresh seafood dishes being made to order. As opposed to Fisherman's Market, Shanghai Reds focuses on well-conceived entrees that dance between American, Italian and Tex-Mex, but which keep the focus on the exceptionally fresh seafood purchased daily from dockside fishermen. There are options for vegetarians as well as those who aren't keen on seafood, but the bulk of the menu and the majority of the restaurant's focus features their exceptional shellfish and fish creations.
Tucked away in the courtyard of La Plaza Shopping Center, Farm is a great place to enjoy a host of Provençal-inspired dishes as well as a smattering of Spanish fare. Set in a cozy space, Farm is strangely reminiscent of European countryside with its wood burning firepits and an outdoor patio strewn with blooming flowers. To add to the charming ambience, the atmosphere is usually quiet and calm, even when the restaurant is brimming with people. Once you have settled in, call for delicacies like Croque Madame Sandwich, Saumon Epinards Crepes and Grilled Shrimp Omelette. The dishes are delicious, owing their taste to both the use of artisanal farmer’s produce, and fresh, local ingredients as well as the skill of the head chef, Alfredo Carrion. However, it is the Bacon, Chicken and Waffles, that is the showstopper on the menu. Made with grilled chicken, sausages, bacon and waffles flavored with gravy, the dish is a treat to the taste buds. Homemade jams, French-pressed coffees and made-to-order food are just some of the other reasons to dine here. If you are in the mood for a meal that you will remember for a long time, head to Farm and get ready to go on a culinary voyage.
