Just back from Palm Springs -- visited Okura Robata Grill and Sushi Bar for the first time. It's part sushi bar, part Asian fusion. Open kitchen. Interesting menu. Best of all, really good food! The restaurant is a bit away from Palm Springs -- on 111 in La Quinta -- but I saw that there's a second Okura opening in Palm Springs in September.
Usually I'm disappointed with Japanese food in the desert, but not this trip.
