One of the group of restaurants located at the La Quinta Resort & Club, Twenty 6 specializes in classic comfort food. Basically a modern American bistro offering locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, you won’t ever be bored with the innovative take on the food here.
Open from 7am until 10pm during the week and midnight on the weekends, Twenty 6 offers breakfast, lunch dinner and bar menus to please anyone. They’ve got a great outdoor area to sit at with a view of the mountains, but sitting at the bar is also recommended, as it is said that the service is the best there.
Voted as one of the top restaurants in La Quinta, reviewers are constantly raving about the breakfast menu and it is easy to see why. Egg lovers can choose from five different Benedicts, like the Tschirky classic with Canadian bacon and hollandaise, or the veggie with sliced tomato, asparagus and hollandaise or the BLT that features lump crab and pimiento sauce. Other classic egg dishes include Huevos Rancheros, Steak and Eggs, a variety of omelets or just eggs with the traditional fixins’.
Everything from griddle also looks amazing, with hotcakes, waffles and French toast. If you don’t want to go too fancy, Irish steelcut oatmeal or the fruit plate is also a great choice. Don’t forget to add a freshly squeezed juice or a Bloody Mary to your breakfast, as its made with housemade infused vodka and housemade bloody mary mix.
Come back for lunch for great sandwiches and salads like the Maine lobster club, La Quinta Cobb, or the Ploughman’s lunch.
Dinner has some great traditional features with a cool twist. You can share a vegetable flatbread or fried calamari and then dig into roasted chicken or steamed lobster risotto as your main. Every day Twenty 6 offers specials as well:
• Monday – buttermilk fried chicken
• Tuesday – spaghetti and meatballs
• Wednesday – grilled swordfish
• Thursday – braised short ribs
• Friday – fish and chips
• Saturday – chicken pot pie
• Sunday – old fashioned meatloaf
These obvious tastes of home are all made in house and will definitely remind you of your mom’s recipe.
Try one of their many handcrafted cocktails while you sit at the bar, or dive into the well-stocked beer and wine list. What’s great about Twenty 6 is that it can be a great place for a family gathering, but also a superb spot to bring a date and have drinks and shareables.
