This list of restaurants might make you hungry. First up on the menu we’ve got the fabulous restaurant with perhaps the most interesting name, Farm. As you may have guessed, everything is locally-sourced and fresh. It’s a slice of French heaven, or “paradis,” and their Tuscan melon salad is heavenly.

At The Tropicale Palm Springs, you will find unique decor and an outdoor patio surrounded by lush landscaping. One of the favored dishes on their menu is the tomahawk pork chop.
