Overview

"A must-read for everyone dining in the valley."
-Martin Rakowitz, Chaine des Rotisseurs

"I always enjoy Peter Osbaldeston's restaurant reviews: he has an adventurous spirit, an excellent palate, and a quirky sense of humor."
-Henry Fenwick, food columnist and coauthor of the cookbook Palm Springs Flavors

Peter Osbaldeston worked for several years as a food writer and critic for local newspapers and magazines before deciding to create this comprehensive dining guide for the nine resort cities of the Coachella Valley, which include Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Bermuda Dunes, Indio, and Desert Hot Springs.

This accessible guide includes selected established and lesser-known restaurants, with comments on food quality, pricing, and ambiance. It is divided into user-friendly chapters including resort and hotel dining, casino dining, "palaces," bistros, and ethnic restaurants. Additional chapters are devoted to California Fusion, steakhouses, novelty restaurants, kid-friendly eateries, and kosher options.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.
