"We love dining at Michael. The food is delicious. The ambiance is lovely and the service is always personal and attentive. We are always happy to see that the restaurant is fully booked because we hope it will stay open for many, many years."

Chef Sarah Stegner joins husband Rohit Nambiar & fellow chef George Bumbaris in creating this casual Northbrook restaurant, boasting a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. Wood-top tables without tablecloths give the main dining room a contemporary feel while seating is also available in the bar area. A menu, changing monthly, features contemporary American fare featuring seasonal ingredients. For dessert, Chef Stegner's mother bakes delicious pies.

"We took out of town family members who absolutely raved about their meals. The telapia and creamed spinach is wonderful. So is the whitefish.
The strip steak was also wonderful. The duck too.

Established in the heart of Palm Springs since 1973, Le Vallauris located at the foot of San Jacinto Mountains has been the highest rated restaurant in the Palm Springs Valley since its inception. Owned and operated by the well known restaurateur Paul Bruggemans who was also owner of the Famous Le St Germain restaurant in Hollywood. The Historic Landmark was built in 1927 and was owned by the owners of the famous Desert Inn which was The hotel in the Valley. Many grand parties were held in the house for guests such as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and many more. It was a favorite place for General Patton when he was based in Palm Springs to stage the Battle of the Bulge during World War II. Later on, when the restaurant was established it became a favorite place for Presidents and the Hollywood elite. The renowned Patio lined with Giant Fichus trees is THE place to dine. The Patio is cooled in the Summer and heated in the Winter.

"We called ahead because we had a couple of people in our party who were quite hearing challenged. The ,anger promised he could accommodate us with a table in the corner which would be quiet for our party. It was ready and waiting for us when we arrived and we had a lovely conversational evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the dinners. Excellent salmon, lamb shank and shrimp. A wonderful find. We will go back when return to Palm Springs next year."
