Clandestino...the next chapter
The best English translation we have seen for Clandestino is . . . hidden or kept secret.
We have been fortunate to be given the opportunity to interpret the cuisine of Provence through FARM and to bring the cuisine of Jalisco, Mexico to the Palm Springs diner through Tac/Quila.
We believe it is now time to “kick out the walls” and offer a unique Latin American experience to those who wish to dine in, those who wish to take out, and those who wish to enjoy the cuisine at their catered event. Hence, the Clandestino experience!
Just what is the Clandestino experience?
True to its name, Clandestino is off the beaten path – secret if you will. Located on the Paseo behind Johnny Was at 175 North Palm Canyon Drive, Suite 160, it exudes the ethos of Old Palm Springs, itself a clandestine destination.
Palm Springs first drew the attention of the Hollywood crowd in the 1930’s, when the Hollywood movie stars began to visit. The movie stars were drawn to Palm Springs by their desire for privacy – and because it was allegedly within the radius of permitted travel in their studio contracts. A clandestine experience beckoned adventurers even then.
Clandestino opens up to the foothills of the breathtaking San Jacinto Mountains – you can experience Palm Springs at its best from either our beautiful outdoor dining space or our fully stocked cantina, which opens to the outdoors.
When you enter the cantina, you will understand why we call Clandestino “Tac/Quila’s moody sister.” The dark ceilings, walls and floor accented by lush, colorful seating areas, our spectacular art collection and of course, our massive back bar, all work together to create a mood. A mood that is undercover, stealthy and frankly, moody.
Whether you are enjoying our Latin cuisine, our craft cocktails, or our array of fine liquors in the restaurant, at home, or at your catered event, the experience will be the same – excellent, well curated food and drink, beautifully presented and delivered with our love.
That is the Clandestino experience. We wish to share it with you.
