Late-hour tapas
One of the few restaurants to have late hours in Palm Springs, Alicante is popular for that reason alone. Good shareable plates are also a bonus.

      Expansive menu, reasonable prices. Delish!
      I visited Zini during Palm Springs Restaurant Week and everything that we tried was delicious. Large selection of tapas dishes. Our starter - beets with walnuts, artisanal goat cheese and jalapeno creme - got even better as it warmed to room temp. So did our plate of Humbolt Fog, fig and fresh toasted/olive-oiled crostini. Magnificent, crunchy green beans, half-clothed in garlic aioli, were the star of the meal. The linguini with mussels and clams came wading in a delectable broth that the fresh, warm bread sopped up efficiently. The espresso-chocolate-and-ice-cream finale was outstanding. Our waiter was around exactly when we needed him. Outdoor and indoor seating and a friendly looking bar. Right on the strip, so its perfect for people-watching. Will be back for more goodness.
