Palm Springs Resto Recs


I am going to be in Palm Springs for a bachelorette party late September. I would love some recommendations on some delicious eateries in town. We will be staying at the Viceroy and the Ace Hotels and would love a couple of options for "cant miss" places or "gems" of the desert.
I am open to anywhere from dive places to 5 star places, just as long as there is awesome food, or scenery, or quintessential Palm Springs attitude. We will be in town Thursday-Sunday so all meals are on the table (breakfast, brunch, lunch, ect.)
Also it would great to know some fun bars in town too...

Thanks in advance!

Birthday brunch recs please :)

I second the Corson Building!
If you want total variety and the whole "Brunch Experience" Portage Bay Cafe is very popular and there is always a long line.
Boat Street Cafe (great French shabby chic atmosphere) as well.

Where to eat

I would recommend
#1: Go to Canlis. Every person should experience the service, view, and the food here. You will spend...and have fabulous memories.
#2: going to Walrus for drinks and oysters before Staple and Fancy! Kill two (delicious) birds with one stone. (they are in the same building in Ballard)
#3 going to Sitka and Spruce, which is located in Melrose Market. You can grab a drink at Bar Fer'dnand and people watch while you wait for your table.

This is not a "food" gift….but the company is from Seattle and local.
These are fabulous gifts and come in every color of the rainbow. Super classy for the dinner table and you will find them on the tables of a number of well known restaurants in the area.

Where can I go (specifically) to forage for chanterelles?

I am in the Seattle area and would love to start collecting my own mushrooms. Since i am not an experienced forager, i decided that it would be best to stick with chanterelles because they are not easily mistaken for toxic varietals.
If anyone knows any specific trials or hikes or forests that i can go to.. that would be great.

Thanks in advance for viewing.

Best Seattle Sushi?

"Sushi in Joy" in Bellevue (located in a strip mall :) next to QFC. Excellent quality, price, and great green tea with some sort of brown rice floating in it to give it a nutty taste.
"Saito's Japanese Cafe" in Belltown
