Palm Springs Town & Country Restaurant 1950s
According to the Palm Springs Modern Committee the Palm Springs Town & Country Center, built between 1946 and 1955 "was once a glamorous retail, restaurant, and residential mixed-use project designed over the years by a number of important visiting and local architects including A. Quincy Jones, Paul R. Williams, Albert Frey, John Porter Clark, Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison."
The restaurant opened in 1948 and according to the Desert Sun it was “Ultra modern in design, with a unique architectural and [pinkish tan/dark teal] color motif which gives it a sharp individuality, the Town & Country was created to provide a smart, new, intimate rendezvous for Villagers.” Sadly the Center closed around the year 2000 and is now the subject of a pitched battle between preservationists and developers as to its future.
