With a hip, cool ambience, fabulous food and an ample wine selection, Cork & Fork in La Quinta has a winning recipe and has become one of the go to dining spots in the Coachella Valley.Lead up by Chef Audie Hubka, Cork & Fork was created from their “Cooking with Class” cooking school. It has since seeped into the fast lane of fave’s for many foodies.

The restaurant has a very stylish bistro feel, and a different vibe from most desert dining spots. It drips with a distinctive sense that this is something special. One of the things that makes Cork & Fork so unique, is their small plate offerings, bigger than Tapas, but smaller than a traditional entrée. The small plate practice allows guests to try out (and share) several dishes, without being completely anchored down to one section and becoming filled by it. 

The restaurant serves wine and beer, and is known for their abundant selection of both. They even offer flights of wine and beer (small tastings of several options) which is beneficial for those who want to try out many selections before making a full-fledged commitment to a glass…sort of like alcohol dating.

Small plate offerings encompass the Crispy Cauliflower (sriracha aioli, pine nut gremolata, pomegranate molasses), Ahi Sesame, Poke ‘Nachos’(togarashi aioli, sweet soy, wonton chips, avocado, wasabi caviar), Filet Mignon (sriracha aioli, pickled red onion, avocado, micro cilantro), and Tequila Lime Shrimp (chipotle lime aioli, cotija cheese, Applewood bacon, tomato, micro greens) Street Tacos, and some awesome looking pizzas as well.

Dessert selections include a phenomenal Sunday, Sundae (dark chocolate brownie, salted caramel gelato, ganache, candied pecans) and King’s Hawaiian Bread Pudding (fresh banana, white chocolate chips, ’99 Bananas’, whiskey caramel) among others. 

Cork & Fork is open all summer for dinner from 5pm (closed on Mondays), with their last seating at 8pm, reservations are suggested. Their prices are moderate, and they even have a great Happy Hour daily from 5-6, with $2 off all small plates and $6 glasses of selected wines.

With innovative recipes, excellent service and a cool ambience, there is no wonder why it has become a Coachella Valley treasured dining spot, and a true favorite of The Palm Springs Local!

Housed in the 1940’s guesthouse of Cary Grant’s former estate, is the romantic Copley’s restaurant. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating, and no matter which one you choose, you will feel the romance of this unique establishment. My husband and I have enjoyed all of our experiences at Copley’s and rated it high for their hit home combination of ambience, service and especially their food. Highlighted menu items include, Pan Seared Fresh Scallops(creamy corn leeks, tomato relish, Portobello mushroom dressing), Roasted Beet & Goat CheeseSalad (micro greens, poached pear, candied walnuts, honey mustard dressing), and the HerbCrusted Rack of Lamb (roasted squash, sautéed spinach, Merlot reduction, English mintdressing). With a full bar and extensive wine list, dining at Copley’s is a true enhancement to thePalm Springs experience and an easy addition to my Top Ten list. I’m sure Cary Grant wouldhave loved it too!

Cheeky's Palm Springs



Cheeky’s Palm Springs is a treasure of a restaurant. I first heard about it from other local foodies, and when my husband and I finally tried it, I quickly understood what all of the hype was about. Cheeky’s strives to serve food that is not only organic, but locally grown. Their innovative menu changes weekly, keeping the offerings fresh and inviting. Menu items like, Poached Eggs over Duck Confit Hash and Pesto Fries are only a few reasons that Cheeky’s is on my Top Ten list. Oh, and did I mention their Bacon Bar? Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about!Opened from 8am-2pm, this moderately priced eatery serves Breakfast items all day and Lunch after 11:30am. Growing in popularity, Cheeky’s sometimes has a waiting list to get in, so be patient, because it is so worth the wait.
