Sorry for the inconvience, we are currently having technical issues. Please contact us via phone for now to make a reservation. 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 love Vallauris! The setting is magical, the food is absolutely delicious and the service is impeccable. We have never had anything but a fabulous meal and wonderful service. We will come back at least once every time we are in Palm Springs."

"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."

The perfect juxtaposition of lighthearted attitude and intense flavor in an atmosphere that proves fine dining doesn’t have to be uptight.

"We love the food and the ambiance but we didn't get either our drinks or bread for 35-40 minutes. They were short staffed but not apologetic. The dinner was also served a good half hour after we ordered. We would love to come back but would hope the service is much better."

"Francesca's North opened in May (1995) and instantly became the hottest spot on the North Shore - for good reason. Scott Harris has mastered the art of serving generous portions of good food at low prices in stylishly simple surroundings with friendly service - a winning formula that eludes so many." (Chicago Magazine Great Dining '95) <br /><br />Francesca's North features the zesty, earthy cuisine of Rome and the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. Located in Northbrook, it encourages the lively art of dining with a contemporary, casually sophisticated trattoria ambiance, good, simple cooking, friendly service and fair prices. Now accepting reservations, Francesca's North put an end to the tradition of waiting for hours for a table at the bar. Large parties are encouraged to call and set up a family style tasting by the chef called Tavoli di Amici (Table of Friends).
