Greater Palm Springs Restaurant Week returns from June 1 – 17 for 17 days of delicious dining deals throughout the oasis. Of course, every single meal on the list is a deal when compared to what the three-course prix fixe menus would cost a la carte. But with some restaurants offering lunch, special cocktails, wine pairings or meal enhancements, the bang for your buck can really make for a special event.
Let’s take a look at where to sit down to some of the top menu add-ons during Greater Palm Springs Restaurant Week. Tax and gratuity are not included in per person prices, and reservations are recommended, especially on weekends.
If you haven’t tried Vietnamese cuisine, this your chance! In addition to the $29 menu, Chef Chad Gardner offers an additional upgrade in the appetizer course (Viet ahi nachos, $6); or entrée ramen dishes, red curry coconut broth with chile’d tiger shrimp ($8) or chile braised osso bucco ($12).
The Miramonte is known for its grounds-to-table cuisine, using fruit from trees, along with herbs and veggies planted around the property. Here, both the $20 lunch and $39 dinner menus include a glass of wine. Lunch entrees include a Mangalista pork steak and grass-fed burger, with dinner offering a petit filet instead of the burger.
Not only a great price of $49, but there are pairings suggestions of wines for the appetizer course, sakes to accompany your entrée and Gekkeikan Plum wine to go with dessert.
Add $12 for two special margaritas to accompany the appetizer and entrée courses of the $39 dinner.
Chef Johannes Batcher always presents a restaurant week menu that is worth checking out. This year he again offers a Continental menu for $49, with suggestions for a Watermelon martini ($16) to start the meal, wine pairings for the appetizer and entrée courses and a Peanut Butter or Orange Chocolatini ($16).
Along with the $49 three-course menu, Lavender offers wine pairings for an additional $20, including Meiomi, Pinot Noir, Monterey Coast, 2016 with the entrée course.
Along with a comfort food menu priced at $29, each menu option comes with a suggested wine, beer, cider or sparkling wine, all priced from $3 to $8 a glass. The topper is the Judy Garland cocktail, also $8, with gin, hibiscus and lemon topped with sparkling wine.
In addition to the menu that is full of comfort foods (including Maryland soft-shell crab with four preparation options) for $39, the popular Palm Springs restaurant is again offering several special cocktails for Restaurant Week.
Good food and music make the Pub a great place to hang out. The $29 menu offers a four-course meal with soup, salad, entrée and dessert. Along with the comfort food, the RW menu includes wine, beer and cocktail pairings priced from $7 to $11 a glass.
