CHI CHI at the Avalon Hotel Palm Springs

From Tara Lazar, the chef that brought you Palm Springs culinary hotspots Cheeky’s, Birba and Mr. Lyons, comes The Avalon Hotel Palm Springs' new restaurant: Chi Chi at the Avalon Hotel. An ode to Tara's childhood summers spent south of the border, the menu recalls soulful Latin standards--with a dash of cheeky California wellness--in the playful pool-centric setting of Palm Springs. Each dish is a memory from her travels, brought back home and reproduced with the freshest local ingredients and home-style scratch cooking. During the day, it’s made for free flowing indoor outdoor meals, spa-side snacking, and casual noshing around our multiple pools. As the sun sets, our relaxed gathering place for food and fun transforms into candlelit fine- dining experience, a perfect poolside venue for hand crafted cocktails, delicious California wines and world-class cuisine that pairs wonderfully with the inspired décor and desert sky overhead.

"Good good and service. Flash fried cauliflower and Jidoori chicken were standouts. Pricing is high for the type of good but they have hired a new chef who is revamping the menu."

"In spite of very attentive and personable servers who are working very hard to overcome the fare which is mediocre to the point of disappointing, or, blah, Chi Chi at The Avalon is not worth your while.
New management appears to have done little to upgrade the place - it's looking very tired. We gave the former incarnation (The Viceroy) several tries, but, this was the last. There are so many new or truly refreshed restaurants/resorts in Palm Springs no one needs to settle for 2nd string."

"I came here on my last day in Palm Springs, after reading a mention on a fashion blog.
This absolutely exceeded expectation- the food was top quality and the perfect amount. Our server was efficient and friendly.
But the best part may have been the quiet, outdoor setting next to the pool. Free valet was the icing on the cake. I would absolutely recommend and would absolutely return.

"We sat on the patio by the pool, very nice setting. I had the coconut pan fried chicken and my husband had the seabass, we both really enjoyed our dinner. Lots of great appetizers to choose from. We were too full to have dessert. We had a nice bottle of wine, a little pricey. Great service. Would definitely go back again."

"Excellent service and food with friendly staff. We shared guac and chips, tamales, sopas and cauliflower which were all delicious. We tried to order more tamales but they were out. Quaint outdoor seating was extremely relaxing. The tortilla soup had a kick but the creme fraiche and avocado mellowed out the flavors. We also shared the special Aspen Ridge steak with fingerling potatoes, artichoke, mushrooms and Pom seeds. The french press coffee and a lava cake to share added to the perfect experience. Highly recommend."

"Bear in mind that if you are staying at the hotel for the weekend, the breakfast and lunch menu will be the same so you might want to go elsewhere in town for one or the other. Having said that, there is plenty of choice and it's all quite healthy and delicious. The date smoothie is amazing."

"Maybe the chef had an off night or it was his night off. We were very disappointed in our food. Ribeye steak was ordered medium rare... It came out very well done. Sent it back only to find out that there were no more ribeye steaks left. The manager did come out and apologize and offered a replacement fillet, which was a nice gesture. The steak came out after the rest of us had already finished our food.
I had chicken fried in coconut oil as my entree. My order consisted of 2 chicken wings and 1 drumstick with a side of arugula. The arugula had little wheels of jalapeños hidden in it which nearly choked me. I like hot food, but that was ridiculously hot. The chicken was tasty but I expected a breast and thigh sized portion.
There are too many places in Palm Springs to get a great meal. Don't waste the occasion here!"

"We had Sunday brunch. We were packed in with others around the pool. People with suitcases meandered through on their way to checking out. We were so close to the hot tub, my friend was afraid to move her chair. The eggs I ordered claimed to be made with roasted brussel sprouts and I couldn't find any in the dish."
