Posted By: Palm Springs Insider Saturday, May 06, 2017

Changing up the everyday is fun, so why not shake up your ordinary ‘let’s get burgers’ night out by trying some new flavors?

Sammy GsItalian food has never tasted so good at Sammy G’s where the chefs put a decidedly California spin on the old world flavors. Take a break from shopping and dine al fresco for lunch on their newly renovated patio or soak up the Tuscan ambiance inside. http://sammygsrestaurant.com/








Popular with diners, L'Olivo Italian Bistro serves up Italian favorites like spaghetti and meatballs and caprese salad, but also fresh fare like ahi tuna tartare.  With a long list of pastas and mains, there’s sure to be a delicious choice for everyone in your group. http://lolivoitalianbistro.com/menu/

The bold wall color at Watercress Vietnamese gives you a hint at the flavors inside this restaurant.  Try the popular pork belly buns or the watercress beef salad for an exciting change from the ordinary. http://watercressvietnamesebistropalmsprings.com/

Speaking of different, why not head over to Pho 533 Viet Fusion and taste your way through the Spring Roll Bar? Pho 533 Viet Fusion bills itself as Palm Springs’ premier Vietnamese restaurant  and with the modern decor, curated California wine selection and the amazing fresh flavors, it’s easy to see why.

You can’t go wrong with a restaurant that’s been around as long as Blue Coyote has. Sample the unique Tequila Prawns or Poppers in a Serape for modern twists on Mexican flavors. http://www.bluecoyotegrill.com/lunch-menu/

Rio Azul
