Cafe des Beaux Arts Restaurant Review: This restaurant’s most distinguished feature is its pleasant wraparound patio looking out onto one of Palm Desert’s busiest corners. The French bistro fare within includes an average --- and sometimes better than average --- array of traditional dishes, including rabbit Dijonnaise and the house specialty bouillabaisse. The long and inclusive menu features standout items such as a very acceptable lamb Provençale and duck with fig sauce. The elegant lounge area with its mix of cozy booths and horseshoe-shaped bar is the perfect place to nosh on small plates as you summon up the spirit of Edith Piaf.
