Finally, something new and good in Palm Springs

  • 1

After spending the summer out of town my SO and I made our usual trip down the strip to our old favorites. Philippe’s Café is no more and will be missed but our favorite Zin American Bistro was still there and busy. Offering half off the wine and an enticing new Brunch menu (food and endless mimosas for only $21) we ate there and enjoyed everything as usual. The waiter told us they had opened another place just up the street. The charming, European Bistro atmosphere and the patio dining called to us and we went back for an early dinner. The menu was interesting, Italian but not…the real charmers here were the tapas. A great selection of choices under $7 delighted us. From the chorizo stuffed calamari to the egg with artichoke heart and asparagus it was inspired and well executed. Simple wine list featuring wine from Spain and Italy at good prices ($20-$25). A great new find for Palm Springs. Zinicafemed.com

  1. Good to know - thanks .. Have you been to Fisherman's Market & Grill and the small bar (Shanghai Reds) attached? That was a real find for us a few weeks back...high value and fun.
