The Purple Palm Restaurant Review

: The Purple Palm has experienced a rapid turnover of chefs since it opened, but that fact hasn't made the place less appealing. Chef Nick Tall checks in from Hong Kong to helm this Movie Colony hideaway. Expect menu items to include octopus with garbanzo bean pesto and grapefruit, as well as main courses ranging from black cod with pickled strawberries to a pork chip with ancho chile glaze. Of course, this being a hotel restaurant, you can wander in for breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy a relaxed and resort-like setting that is the quintessential Palm Springs experience.
