There’s something to be said for a go-to destination where ordering your “usual” gets a nod of recognition. And yet, it’s led by serious chef. At Chi Chi restaurant, Jason Moffitt’s fresh, balanced California menu matches your desert mood, be it health or indulgence or somewhere in between. Here, we add rum to our coconuts. That’s simply how we lunch.
A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, Jason brings 15-years of experience and award-winning dishes to the Chi Chi at Avalon kitchen. Overseeing all culinary operations, Moffitt brings a commitment to quality, imagination and passion to his role as Executive Chef, serving an eclectic menu of healthy California creations, inspired by his beloved home town of Palm Springs.
From garden party brunches to candlelit dinners under the stars, Avalon Palm Springs plays the creative host. Over 4.5 acres of manicured lawns and three pools with chic cabana reception areas, our array of discrete settings charm with a personal touch. For larger corporate functions, the re-appointed Presidio Ballroom & Courtyard flows between indoor/outdoor landscapes as well.
In 1999, we transformed a forgotten architectural gem on a quiet corner of Beverly Hills into an exciting boutique hotel we called Avalon. Our very first property sparked two decades in hospitality and design, including our sister resort in the magical desert of Palm Springs.
Avalon flows with what we adore about creating, running, and staying in small luxury hotels. Both share fresh perspectives on mid-century revival and modern design. Both are comfortable with the paradox of friendly glamour…of a hideaway right here and now.
