Palm Springs Uptown Design District is home to swanky midcentury modern architecture, trendy boutique shops, upscale art galleries, and of course, a number of stylish and elegant restaurants. If you want to visit one of Palm Springs consistently highest rated restaurants, take an afternoon or evening to dine at Eight4Nine Restaurant and Lounge, an American-fusion eatery with a snazzy vibe.
Eight4Nine is an Exciting Contemporary Restaurant in a Historic Building
Like many notable businesses uptown, Eight4Nine in Palm Springs is housed in a renovated building—this one was once the very first post office in Palm Springs! Now the vast space is decorated in a classy and striking white, with vibrant pops of color that perfectly reflect the fashionable uptown aesthetic. Since opening in 2015, it’s quickly become a hot spot for not only lovers of uptown, but for the entire city!
At lunch, start off with deliciously light appetizers like made-to-order guacamole, or the Pear Salad—greens topped with oven-roasted pear, blue cheese, and roasted hazelnuts, drizzled with a spiced pear vinaigrette. For late risers still searching for their breakfast fix, you can create your own omelet—made with farm fresh eggs and served with home fries, the selection of fillings includes favorites like applewood bacon and rarer delights such as garlic thyme shrimp and brie cheese. There’s also a lineup of salads and sandwiches, with notably unique entrees like the Truffle Grilled Cheese and the Lobster Roll.
When it’s dinner time, treat yourself to a bowl of Crab and Corn Chowder—a creamy combination of Dungeness crab, sweet corn, and applewood bacon. The dinner menu boasts a diverse number of inspired creations, such as the Lobster Mac & Cheese with Maine lobster and a blend of fine cheeses. Or if you’re looking for a bit of Southwestern flair, try the Mesquite-Smoked Carne Asada, served alongside a sweet corn pudding. Rest assured you’ll find a large selection of specialty cocktails and martinis, local beer on tap, and a wine list. Try the Mid-Century, a savory bourbon cocktail with honey syrup, or if you can brave the heat order Some Like It Hot, a tequila martini with Cointreau and a habanero salt rim. Don’t forget to save room for scrumptious house-made desserts like the Peach Cardamom Crème Brulee, with a peach topping and vanilla wafer crumbles.
You can find Eight4Nine Restaurant and Lounge at 849 N Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92262, and they’re open on Monday to Thursday from 11 AM to 9 PM and stay open until 10 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Sunday hours run from 9 AM to 9 PM. It’s definitely one of the best American restaurants in Palm Springs!
