Modernism has sparked a revival of cool, retro restaurants beyond Palm Springs’ Uptown District. Here are a few places to sip an icy martini, imbibe a fruity concoction, or indulge in innovative cuisine:

Circa 59 at Riviera Palm Springs. This eatery captures the revival of 1960s glam décor with its red-velvet wallpaper, crystal chandeliers, and deep cushiony booths. Its patio overlooks the resort’s free-form pool and romantic fire pits. Tease your taste buds with the Oysters Gratin Riviera. This dish is a modern take on the classic Oysters Rockefeller, served with Pernod, arugula, and hot pepper flakes on a garlic parmesan buttered toast.

Lose yourself at Citron at Viceroy Palm Springs. Its iconic lemon-yellow accents and luxurious white armchairs juxtaposed against French MCM white and black décor make this a Hollywood Regency dining experience. Or choose a covered outdoor pavilion by the pool.
