I LOVE restaurant week. Let me say that again, I LOVE RESTAURANT WEEK! Okay, maybe I'm a little too excited for it but starting Jun 1 - 17 (I guess that's weekS) is the Greater Palm Springs Restaurant Week. This 17-day dining event takes place at several restaurants around the Coachella Valley showcasing a variety of local favorites, culinary experiences, and special discounts. Most participating restaurants offer special menus at set prices with lunches starting at $15 - $25 and Dinners at $29 - $49.
There are no tickets required. Just simply dine at the participating restaurants this week to get the deal. It's important to make reservations because seating fills up fast. Walk-ins are welcome but of course, reservations get seated first and we always make reservations. Take a look at the line up and make your reservations today.
This is a great way to experience some of the pricier restaurants in town without spending a fortune. Here are just some of our favorites in the lineup this year.
AL Dente Trattoria Toscana – with their clams linguine, European atmosphere, and delicious bread with fresh garlic, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil.
