Palm Springs for a long weekend

Hi there --

I'm taking a long weekend in Palm Springs and need some tasty suggestions. I've browsed through old posts but there is not much there; I'm hoping chowhounders will come to my rescue.

I'll also be bringing my Russian-New Yorker parents so exposing them to some CA food that's delicious and not spicy (can't push them too far) will be especially appreciated.

    1. I've been twice this year to Zin American Bistro ( - it's nothing new or very "California," but everything we've had has been wonderful from the main menu as well as the chef's seasonal selections.

        My vote is for Zin. Great food. Husband is the chef, wife runs the front of the house. Can't go wrong.

      2. We like edguardos, killer margeritas! Not everything is spicy!

        1. Cool; thanks. Anyone else have tips?

          1. I like Zin also. Had wonderful swordfish there tonight! Edguardo's is the best authentic Mexican IMO. Copley's is good American/Fusian. St James has a fun atmosphere and Thai flavor to the menu. Stay away from Kaiser Grill- tourist trap. Enjoy

              I don't like Edguardo's. El Mirasol for more upscale Mexican or El Gallito in Cathedral City for authentic Mexican are better in my opinion.
