EIGHT4NINE Restaurant and Lounge Review by Jesse Bluma



EIGHT4NINE Restaurant and Lounge Review





The Golden Age of celebrities, furturism, and crisp modern taste characterizes EIGHT4NINE.  Bob Hope, Elvis and Pricilla Presley, Ronald Reagan and more called the desert their home.  EIGHT4NINE is rooted in that California history at the same time focused on the culinary appetites of today.   

“The eclectic menu features a celebration of West Coast Modern American Cuisine which focuses on both presentation and flavors.  Chef Chuck Courtney brings his impressive culinary experience from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, as well as Northern and Southern California to EIGHT4NINE. Times.  All dishes are prepared from scratch, reflecting each dish’s specific ethnic origins with Chef’s individual creative flair.  Albert Gonzalez heads the team that has created the exquisite dessert selection.”




My Recommendations

1.  Peak times occur during weekdays and nights, especially weekend nights.  January through April is peak season for the California desert.  Make reservations.  

2.  The restaurant is located at 849 North Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Palm Springs, California 92262-- public parking is located on the street.  The popularity and convenience of taxis, private cars, or rideshares may be your best bet, depending on weather and your pre and post meal plans.  Walking the town is also an excellent way to spend the day or night, as long as you wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

3.  The menu consists of freshly made dishes, featuring coastal items, salads, seafood, farm staples, four course meals, and desserts.  If you are famished, the four course meal is for you.  Otherwise, I suggest enjoying a main dish and one of their diverse cocktails.

4.  I enjoyed the following items.  

Sourdough-Crusted Halibut (Substituted with Salmon):  Dungeness crab-stuffed piquillo pepper, saffron aioli, and greens.

Roasted Beets:  Dandelion greens, toasted cumin and honey vinaigrette, goat cheese, gluten free.

New York Steak:  Grass-fed, baseball cut, truffled potato planks, heirloom tomato, charred spring onion,  St. Ague blue cheese and red wine reduction, gluten free.

Cardamom Peach Crème brûlée
