Ricks Desert Grill


Looking for something a little different? How about a touch of old Palm Springs with a Cuban accent? Dinner options include a stuffed Tostones appetizer with three different meats featured at Rick’s (picadillo, or braised ground beef in a tomato sauce; lechon, a roasted pork; and ropa vieja, shredded flank steak served in a tomato Creole sauce). A popular entrée is the Lechon Asado [roasted pork] which comes with Caribbean rice and black beans, sweet plantains, and yucca. All of Rick’s entrées also include a choice of soup or salad, accompanied by a deviled egg. As for that old Palm Springs touch, large format black-and-white photographs fill the walls of the restaurant and feature classic images of local celebrities such as Lucille Ball at the El Mirador in 1938 and Frank Sinatra in the cockpit of his private airplane.
