Good food is always a draw and we’d like to add our two cents for our Palm Springs visitors.
Counter Reformation is a hidden gem in the Parker Palm Springs. A wine and tapas bar, it has already left its mark on the community, with some of the best food in town. Be sure to try the cheese plate, the beef charcuterie, and the hen of the woods. And, of course, lots and lots of wine.
Sandfish is the perfect spot for a light dinner before your big night out on the Palm Springs town. As a sushi and whiskey bar, it absolutely competes with anything in LA.
