Meet Our Hosts

Charissa Farley-Hay & Bill Hay

This sleek restaurant and bar is the spot of your wildest dreams if you are seeking a dining experience that strikes a balance between healthy and haute.


Self-descibed "chef groupies," owners Charissa Farley-Hay and Bill Hay have traveled the world seeking innovative cuisine and set out to create a destination restaurant. Helmed by one of Southern Califorinia's hottest female chefs Gladis Lizarraga, this innovative El Paseo spot offers health-consious casual fine dining in a sleek and sexy surrounding.


Dedicated to food that nourishes the body as much as it delights the senses, Wildest's menu celebrates grass-fed meats, wild-caught seafood, and creative plant-based dishes made in house. Guests can pair plates like Wagyu beef or turmeric-glazed cauliflower with selections from Wildest's Wine-Spectator Award-winning wine list and enjoy it all sitting under the stars and listening to live entertainment.


The restaurant's moniker functions on multiple levels, referring to the hip, social environment as well as the commitment to close-to-the-earth cuisine. "We wanted to make good-for-you fabulous and fun" Charissa explains. Wildest's health-conscious casual fine dining concept places the restaurant at the forefront of a growing trend in the culinary world.

Meet Wildest Executive Chef & Partner Trilby Tatro


Executive Chef Trilby Tatro grew up in the West Hollywood food scene around Wolfgang Puck, Mark Peele, and Nancy Silverton during her mother’s career as a restaurant and celebrity publicist and a maître d’ of the original Spago.


Trilby first discovered her passion cooking plants, but her broad range of culinary skills brought her to the Viceroy Hotel in Palm Springs. 


She was thrilled to be the Executive Chef at the Purple Palm in The Colony Palms, designed by world famous architect Martin Lawrence Ballard where she worked with esteemed chefs Greg Stillman, Brian Keiper, and Jeff Armstrong.


The Arrive Hotel, the first ground up hotel built in Palm Springs in over 30 years, recruited Trilby to oversee the build and development of the restaurant from the ground up including kitchen design, cost analysis, and menu development with the owner, Ezra Callahan (the 6th employee ever with Facebook.)


She spent three years running one of the largest banquet kitchens in the desert, the Waldorf Astoria La Quinta where she executed high-capacity events such as Ted Talks, Marine Balls, weddings for high net-worth individuals, and constant corporate events. During the pandemic The Waldorf became a movie and TV production set, and Chef Tatro executed all of the catering for entire seasons of The Bachelorette and Chopped, as well as, multiple movies including the Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles movie, “Don’t Worry Darling”.


Chef Tatro has also been an executive banquet chef at one of the most historic hotels in the US, The Omni Mount Washington in New Hampshire as well as the Omni Rancho Las Palmas. She has assisted Task Force Kitchen Management for both Hilton and Omni Hotel Group at the Mandalay Beach Resort Ventura.


Chef Tatro is excited to bring her experience, and passion to the award-winning Wildest Restaurant.

OUR JULY 2024 WINEWOMEN PSP DINNER

BENEFITS AND CELEBRATES

After four long years, the beloved Children's Discovery Museum is reopened and families have hands-on access to the new exhibits in The Main Gallery (Building One) which was renewed to create a whimsical, creative, and exciting space for 0 to 8 year-olds. The space includes creative ways to “Imagine,” “Express,” “Move,” “Experiment,” “Explore” and “Dream.”  


The museum has reopened as a Certified Autism Center as part of its commitment to accessibility and inclusivity. Museum staff have already completed training on Sensory Sensitivity Awareness to achieve the certification. Resources for families will be available and include Sensory Bags, Sensory Guides that describe the type and level of stimulation of each exhibit and a Serenity Space, a private room for families to use to encourage calm in the event of a meltdown.


The Museum will also be offering Summer Camps, Toddler Programming and other special events to serve the families of our community. CDMoD is an inclusive place where people of all abilities and backgrounds are welcome to come together and share experiences while learning about themselves and our world. It is a place where multigenerational family members can grow their relationships through comfortably exploring, sharing and discovering together. At the Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert we are committed to being a safe place for your family to visit while accommodating all your needs; a place where a kid can just be a kid!
