PSST! - Around the World in 8 Restaurants



Mexico
A Palm Springs staple for more than 50 years, Las Casuelas Terraza cooks up traditional aperitivos, sopas, frijoles, fajitas, burritos, tacos, and house specialties such as Camarones al Mojo de Ajo.

United States
The epitome of fine dining, Wally’s Desert Turtle in Rancho Mirage serves up pan-fried filet of Lake Superior whitefish, roasted Colorado rack of lamb, and roasted Iowa gold port tenderloin.

France
Chef Bernard Dervieux’s Cuistot in Palm Desert has won top awards from Condé Nast Traveler and Wine Spectator for his gourmet aperitifs served upon sitting and a world-class wine list.

Austria
At Johannes in Palm Springs, Chef Johannes Bacher embraces local and sustainable ingredients and has a flair for wild game and warm strudel. The New York Times calls his wiener schnitzel a European classic with a modern twist.

Mediterranean
Catalan in Rancho Mirage offers a farm-to-table twist on Spanish and Italian cuisine. Choose from a variety of distinctively flavored tapas and entrées or give in to the Catalan Paella.

Italy
La Spiga’s menu of freshly stuffed sausages, homemade pastas, and reduced sauces that simmer for hours transports you to the hills of Tuscany. Escape to the villa-style gazebos tucked into herb gardens.

Japan
Knife-twirling Samurai chefs slice and sear filets and lobster and turn fresh fish into exotic sushi concoctions before your eyes at Mikado at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert.

Pacific Rim
Iron Chef Roy Yamaguchi pioneered Hawaiian cuisine when he opened Roy’s in 1988. At his Rancho Mirage location, you can taste East-meets-West dishes like Thai basil seared island opah and 24-hour braised lamb shank. Aloha!
