Serious Food and Drink Restaurant Review

: With a name like Serious Food and Drink, this eatery and the team behind it better be sure to create a memorable dining experience. This Palm Springs eatery manages to do just that. Co-owner Kathleen Brown, who once served as President and Mrs. Ford’s private chef, recruited former culinary arts classmate Jacqueline Bruton to head up kitchen operations. The result is a menu of contemporary comfort food, from shepherd’s pie to pork belly sliders. The Seriously Good Burger is a signature dish made with a mixture of chuck, short rib and brisket topped with onion-bacon jam, homemade sauce, lettuce and tomato served on a brioche bun. Topnotch starters include duck-fat fries, Coachella dates with honey goat cheese and prosciutto, and a cheese and charcuterie platter. The $10 lunch specials are a real bargain, as are happy hour offers. The spirits list is a blend of nouveau and classic cocktails made with fresh herbs and local ingredients. The best drink, though, might be the hot chili cocoa topped with toasted, house-made vanilla bean marshmallows.
