King's Highway Restaurant Review: Set in an old Denny's diner, King's Highway has a comfortable, retro air, a slightly funky vibe and a menu that should satisfy most hotel guests or drop-in locals. The breakfast dishes include ricotta hot cakes and a hearty house-made granola. Soups, salads, appetizers and sandwiches are served all day. The dinner menu emphasizes strong, rustic flavors, local produce and a sophisticated spin on comfort food. The roasted half chicken, with thyme, oregano, citrus and a cauliflower dahl, is good; a tasty harissa lamb with smoky eggplant purée and spicy chickpea ragoût is a scene-stealer. Desserts are a blend of simple meets sultry: sticky date pudding (local dates) with brandy caramel sauce and vanilla bean gelato; coconut brioche bread pudding with blackberry thyme compote; and a rich brownie served with gelato will satisfy those who like their sweets to remind them of their childhood. And by Palm Springs standards, the place is open very late (1 a.m. weeknights, 3 a.m. weekends).
