The verdict on America’s top restaurant design for 2013 is in and the esteemed panel at Restaurant and Bar Design Awards has picked Workshop Palm Springs as the best in the Americas! The exclusive awards honor the very best designs in the hospitality industry and the stripped down industrialist style of the Workshop Kitchen + Bar at Palm Springs has charmed many with its symmetric and understated design. The interior of the restaurant offers a very different vibe when compared to the other restaurants in region that sport a more Southern Californian style.
Designed by SOMA Architects, the restaurant embraces an early colonial look with exposed concrete and stoic hues of deep grey taking over the space. Modern minimalism is maintained throughout with the hanging light bulbs, a 34-foot long communal table in the center and flat black leather booths that allow the patrons to enjoy a few quiet and private moments as they take in the unique architecture. Visual and geometric symmetry are adhered to in the strictest sense even as the high ceiling and the exposed rafters give the space a distinct aura.
In fact, the combination of the classic and the contemporary gives you an impression of sitting in a restaurant that is not too far off from being a regal castle dating back to medieval times! It is this sweeping blend of design styles and understated sophistication that has brought home the top design prize in the industry to the doorstep of Workshop Palm Springs!
Chef and owner Michael Beckman, is renowned for his tasty Mediterranean cuisine with improvised American flavors. As you dig into these rich and delicious delights, you will be surely taken in by the exceptional appeal of the award-winning restaurant and bar.
