Eats: Palm Springs, Palm Springs, California (B)

If you want an exceptional meal with a hint of old Hollywood glamour than you have to go to Melvyn’s. The restaurant is located at the historic Ingleside Inn, which dates back to the 1920s. The inn was purchased in 1975 by Melvyn Harbor who opened the restaurant that shares his name and almost immediately it became a magnet for celebrities like Cher, Liza Minnelli, John Travolta, Marlon Brando, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Debbie Reynolds and perhaps most notably Frank Sinatra.
