Grand Central opened in May of 2018 after extensive renovations to the previous Palm Springs Institution, Desmond’s Department Store. After sitting vacant for over a decade, owners and husband and wife, John and Rita, revitalized and reimagined the space as a place for friends to gather and share good conversation, great cocktails, and a wonderful meal. The space was updated to a modern open-concept with a large opening to the kitchen that helps bring the restaurant to life and ensures a one of a kind experience. We invite you to join us and see why we were voted “Best of the Valley” 2o20 by the Desert Sun!
Why the name Grand Central?
In cities and train stations throughout the years, people have been meeting “under the clock”. Grand Central’s iconic clock is a reminder to take a breath; to take some time; to relax and enjoy innovative food and drink at our table.
Be with family and friends – put down your devices and talk.
