Palm Springs A la Carte with Mel Haber
In 1975, Mel Haber, a former automotive accessory manufacturer, opened Melvyn’s Restaurant and the Ingleside Inn in Palm Springs. With no restaurant experience, Haber made every mistake in the book-and his business thrived. He has spent 25 years catering to the beautiful people who have frequented Palm Springs-from French chefs to lovable con men, Ava Gardner to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here are just a few of the hundreds of stories in Haber’s repertoire, Palm Springs a la Carte.
