Lunch in Palm Springs or Palm Desert without our kids!!!

My husband and I have been given a chance to spend the day without our kids and want to treat ourselves to a great lunch. Any recommendations on a place where we might not normally take our kids. Good beer and wine list would be a plus! We live in the Imperial Valley and are willing to head as far west as Palm Springs. Places in Palm Desert or La Quinta would be great, too. Thanks

  1. We love Pacifica on El Paseo for lunch (or dinner.) Best seafood in the desert. Great bar. Grown up vibe.

    1. I second stamfoodie's recommendation. Pacifica is wonderful.

      Tommy Bahama's is just down the block. At first we thought it would be cheesy, and it is a chain, but my wife and I found we rather like it. It has a nice ambiance, good bar and the food is in generally good.

      I've heard good things about Figue in La Quinta, but haven't been there yet.
