Palm Springs restaurants

I'm going to be in Palm Springs for a week around Xmas/New Years. Any recommendations on restaurants there? One person in our party is a vegetarian, so any veggie-friendly restaurants (particularly Indian) would be particularly appreciated. Thanks.

  1. I really like Zin bistro down town. It's very good. I've had some great braised dishes like beef cheeks and short ribs. Great Mac and cheese, burgers. It's a really nice place.

    1. there's a location of Native Foods - a vegan restaurant that has several locations in So Cal. i've only been to the Westwood branch, and it's pretty casual, but the food is really very good.

      1. Delhi Palace on Palm Canyon a bit south of Vista Chino. Definitely veggie friendly, and pretty solid Indian food - I've never been disappointed there.

        1. I adore Palm Springs, but always struggle to find decent eats there. My favorite spot--for the ambiance as much as the food--is Norma's at the Parker. They only do breakfast and lunch but the two meals I ate there last summer were excellent. Best iced coffee I've ever had while lounging in the shade on the patio. Heaven.

          1. El Mirasol has decent vegetarian versions of Mexican standards. I was there last week. The food was about the same as always. But the margaritas, while never made with fresh ingredients, had a particularly of strong sysco flavor.
