Tucked away in a small strip mall in Bermuda Dunes off the corner of Washington andCountry Club Dr. is hidden foodie fun at Chef Georges. Its right behind Carls Jr…..ok, now looknext to the Thrift Shop, and there it is, one of the most delicious dining establishments in theCoachella Valley. The trick to finding it is not to look for the obvious, a sign. But what mostpeople would find to be a deterrent has become a sort of novelty and part of the charm at ChefGeorges. Opened in 2003 by famed Chef to the Stars George Ristich and his charismatic andlovely wife Lana, Chef Georges has become a desert favorite for those in the know. The food at Chef Georges ranges from traditional Hungarian dishes like Beef Goulash and Chicken Paprikash, to other Continental style items like Chicken Parmesan and Paella. One of myabsolute favorites at Chef Georges is their Italian Chicken Livers. Now don’t let the “Liver” partof this dish give you pause, this specialty is phenomenal! The flavors abound with sautéed peppers, onions’ and mushrooms and are oh so good! Another Chef Georges signature dish is their Greek Salad. This salad unlike traditional Greek Salads, has chopped lettuce, but to me, isthe best Greek Salad I have ever had, it has something to do with his secret dressing that is keptunder guard at all times. And although the portions are generous, there is always room for thehomemade Apple Strudel made fresh daily. With all this wonderful food, excellent service andGeorge and Lana to greet you, Chef Georges is an easy addition to the Palm Springs Local TopTen.
