It's feels like a dinner party --- but mostly a party --- at this swinging '60s dining, dancing and drinking destination.

The Nest Restaurant Review

: Current owners Dodi and Kevin Henry carry on the tradition of this Indian Wells hideaway, which debuted in 1965. Baby Boomers and Gen X'ers seem to gravitate to the high-octane destination, which offers an eclectic menu of steak, seafood and Mediterranean entrées, including gluten-free options. Bacon and date skewers served with a Mornay sauce provide a sweet and savory start to the evening. Veal sweetbreads is a classic at The Nest, with its peppercorn sauce or, better yet, tossed with sautéed lemon and capers. All portions are ample. Those who want to graze for less can do so nightly starting at 4 p.m. with a $6-per-item bar menu. The three-course dinner, served from 4 p.m.-6 p.m., is available for as little as $17. But it's not the early birds but the party animals who tend to stay until last call. If you like star-gazing, keep your eyes peeled for celebrities who enjoy the dim lighting in the piano bar.
