Le Paon, Palm Desert

The food takes a (barely) second place to the stunning beauty of the dining room in this venerable Palm Desert restaurant, Le Paon.  Founded a long time ago it has recently moved to El Paseo, the desert's Rodeo Drive. Located in an upstairs corner it is finished with highest quality materials, even a bar of marble, so thinly shaved that lights placed below the bar shine through softly to the surface.  We were en route to a play at the McCallum Theater (national tour of My Fair Lady) so it was a quick bite, but excellently done and perfectly prepared by the chef, classically trained in Euope and the US.

 

It is the place that amazes and the food that satisfies here, even if just for a bite!

    This place looks really nice! Is it just a couple of blocks down from the Daily Grill? What is below it?

      Yes, it is in a new building and Sephoria is the downstairs store, I think.

    SS and Tryt,

     

    Wonderful information, and what a nice dining experience this would be.

     

    That Sophora is the store next to The C-E Marriott in Paris.  You can just see the "A", in the name, never been in the store, but everyday they attract big crowds with a "Show" that is very entertaining.KIF_1004.JPG

      Jerry,

      Sephora is my wife's favorite shop in the US.  Sounds like another good reason to consider picking the C-E Marriott as the paris place to stay when we get to the big European tour in the future  Thanks!

      Jerry:

      That was the wildest crowd of people shuffling thru that store I have ever seen getting samples, trying samples, staff chasing them for a 'try this' deal and all. My wife LOVED it. I just watched from out front. No way I'm getting in that mix! I might get 'sprayed' with something!
