Reviews of Three Restaurants in Palm Springs, California

Palm Springs, California is known as one of the best places to retire in California.  It is also a haven for winter snowbirds who nearly triple the population of the city during the months of November to March.  For those unaware of was a snowbird is, it is the people who choose to live in their motor homes, trailers or fifth wheels rather than a brick and mortar home.

Because of the nearby mountain and desert areas, Palm Springs offers all sorts of recreational things to do.  Of course, golf is probably the most popular but there is horseback riding, biking, hiking, tennis and swimming.  The city is also known for its cultural and arts scene and its mid-century modern architecture.

Two thousand years ago it was settled by the Cahuilla people.  There was an amazing amount of water and shade and had hot springs scattered throughout the valley which were used in the wintertime.  Today, you can see their petroglyphs in the Indian Canyons as well as their house pits, dams and irrigations ditches.

As of 2017, the population of Palm Springs was over forty-seven thousand people.  With addition of the winter snowbirds, that makes the population close to one hundred and fifty thousand in the winter months.  This makes for a lot of growth and the need for great restaurants.

Palm Springs California Restaurant Image Tac/Quila, located at 415 N Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, California is the creation of Liz and Mark Ostich.  After years of being lawyers, they sat down one day and dared to dream about what they wanted their future to look like.  It came down to working with people and getting into the hospitality industry.

Their first venture, FARM, was inspired by their travels through the countryside south of France.  Their garden-like patio seating and amazing landscaping has pleased clients for years.

However, they were not satisfied to just run FARM.  So, they decided to combine their love of Jalisco style of cuisine and unique tequilas to start Tac/Quila.  They incorporated much of the culture and arts that were forming in Mexico City to come up with their theme that has been so popular with their clientele.

Well their dream has paid off with the evaluations that have been created online.  They score a four-point six-star rating with well over two hundred of them.
