We go to the Desert Rose all the time because it's nearby, has great food, pleasant atmosphere, and friendly service. Most of the tables are outdoors, so it's great for lunch or brunch on a nice day--you definitely need to sit indoors if it's cold or rainy, and there aren't many tables inside (although I've never been turned away in cold weather). Our favorites are the avocado and smoked salmon caesar salad, risotto, goat cheese salad and the fish and chips (best in town!). Portions are just right--not too big, not too small. The bartenders don't always know the recipes for every drink you can think of, but they cheerfully learn new ones, even going across the street to the liquor store to pick up Campari when they run out. They introduced us to Blason Timberlay, a white wine we now buy for home. The owners are always around and come by our table or greet us when we arrive. The giant glass rose outside is a little goofy and puts some people off, but the rest of the design is elegant and beautiful. We've always had a terrific experience there--highly recommended!
