Roy's Restaurant Review

: The menu of Roy’s Rancho Mirage is appropriately (and satisfyingly) dominated by Roy Yamaguchi’s fusion classics, such as hibachi-style grilled salmon, blackened ahi and misoyaki butterfish. But the offerings change frequently. The kitchen focuses on local produce from in or around the Palm Springs area, and highlights fish from Southern California waters --- halibut caught off the California coast and sea bass landed off Santa Barbara. The prix-fixe menu is a good value and is the best way to sample a variety of Roy’s greatest hits. Aloha Hour, happening daily from 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m., presents another way to sample seasonal fare with select appetizers and drinks available at just $6 each. Try the smoked paprika-braised pork shank in a black-eyed peas cassoulet, one of chef/partner Charles Andres' creations. An interesting wine list includes many varietals from Roy’s proprietary label. Specialty drinks and after-dinner coffees cater to creative cocktailers.
