Palm Springs, which can be a little funky at times, has great places to dine--if you can find them. One of these out of the way places where we'll be dining New Year's Eve is John Henry's. This place is locally owned and the owners do not care if they make a lot of money--they love to cook and to share their food with everyone. Hard to get a table and not long on ambiance, the place is excellent for prices and food quality and drinks too.
Worth a trip just to see the one quarter of an apple pie (single serving) with at least a quart of ice cream on top!
