This is Pomme Frite in downtown Palm Springs — an intimate restaurant with a transcendent European atmosphere. Sit on the charming Old World patio and people watch or dine inside softly serenaded by French music. Highlights from Pomme Frite’s heralded appetizer menu include its signature sautéed black mussels and clams. Also available are carpacccio, roasted beets and goat cheese Napolean, and French escargot. For the table, consider a French cheese platter or smoked seafood platter.
