Foundation 10 is a collection of great food and great people in Palm Springs California. We’re two restaurants and a hotel— and an incomparable experience. All properties are Located just north of downtown Palm Springs-in the uptown design district.

Owned by local chef and restaurateur Tara Lazar, Foundation10 is an adventurous oasis inspired by people, food, drink, art, music, design and travel.

Comprised of Alcazar, Birba and Cheeky’s, we like to think we’ve struck the perfect balance: foodies and non-foodies, young creatives and old school traditionalists, jet setters and homebodies, Palm Springs natives and urban dwellers just dipping in for a weekend escape.

This diversity inspires us to curate an eclectic and unforgettable experience you’ll enjoy from start to finish. Get inspired, here.

We’re fresh. F10 Creative is dedicated to Small Farm Food. We use responsibly sourced meats and local produce whenever possible. You can feel the freshness of our dishes, and you’ll come back with a craving for it.

Foundation 10 started with Cheeky’s restaurant in 2008. Our goal was to make homemade breakfast just the way we like it: no fuss, bought local, made from scratch. Turns out you like it too, because Cheeky’s now boasts a cult following among locals and visitors alike.

We got the name F10 from adding the 6 + 2 + 2 of our address at 622 north Palm Canyon Drive. 10 is our lucky number and we hope you’ll think we’re a perfect 10. Our three diverse restaurants and hotel all share the same property, so you don’t need to go anywhere else! (If you get the itch, though, we’re located close to everything great that the desert has to offer, from hiking and dirt bike riding to neighborhood Architecture tours and The Palm Springs Art Museum.

F10 is your home away from home, offering something unpretentious, thoughtful and a bit out of the box— a place where we can share all of our favorite things with you: simple, fresh and delicious food, handcrafted cocktails and lots of choices. This is the experience we would want if we were in your shoes. We're glad you’re here!


We love collaborating with local artists. Aaron Hansen aka Ancient Youth creates our coffee mugs.
