Spencer's Restaurant

BEST BRUNCH

Spencer’s Restaurant

Brunch is one of the more sartorial indulgences for a foodie. Palm Springs Life readers have voted Spencer’s Restaurant the best in this category. Chef Eric Wadlund’s culinary offerings complement the classic desert ambiance. Wadlund infuses old favorites such as beef Wellington and fried oysters with a style all his own and dazzles patrons with distinctive flavor profiles in Spencer’s lobster potstickers and three-onion soup. Sunday brunch is served from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
701 W. Baristo, Palm Springs.

Jackalope Ranch
Mark Cieslikowski

BEST BARBECUE

Jackalope Ranch

Barbecue is a religion in some parts of the country, so prepare to commit several deadly sins at Jackalope Ranch. Sample favorites like the calamari fries or chicken verde tamales. Envy occurs when the trademark sizzle and aroma of slow-cooked baby-back ribs wafts from a neighboring table. Take pride when your order arrives, and forgive yourself for the inevitable sloth that will follow once you’ve cleaned your plate.
