Introducing the LGBT Dine Out Group, Coachella’s newest LGBT social dining experience!  Every second Tuesday of the month, we choose a different restaurant to enjoy.

To join in on the fun, follow these easy steps:

  1. Visit this website each month to check out the upcoming featured restaurant.
  2. Fill out the RSVP to reserve a seat for you (and a friend).
  3. Come to the restaurant on the specified date and time.
  4. Have fun dining and socializing!

This is a great way to try out new restaurants and meet new friends in the LGBT community as well as visitors to the valley.  Open to all…Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and our Straight Supporters.

PLEASE NOTE:  Although there is no fee to participate in the LGBT Dine Out Group, this is a NO HOST event.  You are responsible for paying the restaurant for the food and drinks you order.

Also due to the limited seats available for our group at the restaurant, you must RSVP in order to attend.  We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins at the day of the event. We try to choose restaurants that allow for group seating for 30+ people, depending on what the restaurant allows for.  So be sure to RSVP early to ensure a reserved seat for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the size of our group, some dine-out location may add gratuity to your dining bill. We will do our best to inform you before the event if this is the case.

Featured Restaurant

La Spiga specializes in food that is of the highest quality, pure in its form and cooked to order. Chef Vince Cultraro’s life in the kitchen began at 12 years old in the seaside resort of Marzamemi, Sicily, where he apprenticed under a under a Florentine chef at a small luxury hotel called La Marinella. Later, he moved on to Torino for his full apprenticeship.

At La Spiga, you won’t find any pre-prepared foods in their kitchen; everything is done the old fashioned way. Their full-flavored sauces are naturally reduced. Their meats are natural too, with no hormones or antibiotics. They grind our own meats, make their own sausages, flavor their own oils, fillet their own fish which they fly in daily, and offer their customers the top in freshness and quality. They choose our purveyors based on top quality ingredients of the highest standard. They use only naturally filtered water in the entire building. They use only sea salt and whenever possible organic products, they do not buy meats or fish that have been injected with water and sodium. Only line caught wild fish, and organic eggs from free range chickens.
