Rib Eyes and Punch in... Palm Springs

Friday afternoon. The time is now. Road trip.

Change into your camouflage suit, sneak out the back stairwell and jump behind the wheel.

Hey, you’ve gone a lot farther for a 40-ounce rib eye and a punch bowl full of rum...

Mentally pull your convertible into Workshop Kitchen + Bar, the astounding new cove of communal dining that Palm Springs has long deserved, soft-opening Sunday.

Think about it. Palm Springs is filled with those who appreciate high design, those who don’t mind a dinner that costs more than an immaculate mid-century credenza and those who are on television and boffing their costars on the sly. Of course, everybody’s been waiting for a place that looks like a fancy garage in 2049. (Call it mid-next-century.)

Come in with your navigator, settle into a stark concrete cove—a booth with walls that go all the way up—and put your phones away. You’ll be here awhile.

The chef has spent time tooling around a little three-Michelin-star restaurant in Burgundy, so he’s prepped to handle your desert needs involving octopus carpaccio and lobster terrine—or a huge 40-ounce rib eye for the table. He could also do you up a whole chicken or a whole roasted Texas redfish.

And while you’re sharing, the Bombay Government Punch has enough rum, cognac and green tea for 12.

Technically, you could also order a smaller bowl.

Technically.
