Si Bon proves you don’t have to go over the top with interior design to be a top restaurant contender in Rancho Mirage. The minimalist—yet still visually engaging—bistro is low on frills with decor, which gives so much emphasis on its excellent French-Belgian menu. Diners can enjoy all the restaurant’s European flavors at breakfast, lunch and dinner. While the evening menu highlights some of the bistro’s best culinary adventures, heaping portions of hearty classics are served at breakfast, and Si Bon is known for its ever-famous open-faced sandwiches and delicious salads at lunch.
The Edge Steakhouse at The Ritz- Carlton, Rancho Mirage is not a restaurant as much as it is a total dining experience. The glammed-out and refined signature restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows that are quite literally a lens into the sprawling desert landscape and signature purple-spun sunset. The million-dollar view awaits. The enthusiastic wait staff is suited up, and diners dress to the nines for this special-occasion steakhouse that pulls its cuts from its own dry-aging room. Saddle up at the bar, which, unlike the tables, gives the illusion that you’re floating in the skies. The Edge quite literally has the edge on fine-dining experiences, setting the standard on memorable, highbrow dining.
