Overview

This frank and thorough guide to selected established and lesser-known restaurants, including comments on food quality, pricing, and dress codes, covers the nine resort cities of the Coachella Valley--collectively known as Palm Springs--which include the communities of Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes, Indio, and Desert Hot Springs. Presented in an accessible style, the book is divided into resort and hotel dining, casino dining, and "palaces" and bistros. Smaller chapters are devoted to mountain getaways, gay-friendly eateries, novelties, kid-friendly eateries, and kosher options.

Editorial Reviews

Few foodies can match Peter Osbaldeston's credentials to write a Palm Springs diner's guide. Since moving to area, this accomplished amateur gourmet has served as the food and restaurant critic for several local publications, including the prestigious Desert Magazine. Obviously a labor of love, The Palm Springs Diner's Bible describes both established and little-known restaurants, offering judicious judgments about menu offerings and amenities. As the subtitle indicates, Osbaldeston's selections cover all nine resort towns of the Coachella Valley. A diner's delight.
