El Jefe in the Saguaro Hotel, Palm Springs
El Jefe is in the Saguaro Hotel, which leans heavily into the mid-century modern esthetic. We watched several people poses by the pool side. The rainbow paint job makes a bold background.
The restaurant has moved to the patio near the pool. It offers a good selection of cocktails, wine and beer, as well as a menu that has many Mexican offerings. I had the house margarita and a grilled cheese sandwich with house-made chorizo. Very good. It is a fine place for drinks or a light meal.
