Chef's Counter in Palm Springs/Desert Area?
Does anyone know of any restaurant(s) in the Palm Springs area that feature a Chef's Counter (not a Chef's Table). Last month we arrived at One Market in San Francisco without a reservation. The only place they could seat us was at their Chef's Counter (a place usually left open for walk-ins). We enjoyed the experience (and the food!) so much we booked a couple of spots on the Counter before we left home for Aberta. We could love if there coube a similar experience in P.S.
Also, are there any restaurants in the P.S. area that allow you to bring you own wine and only charge a token corkage fee (somewhere south of $20).

Does it? I think the OP is referring to a counter where you can sit and watch the line cooks in action. When I was at Zin I sat at a regular table, not the communal table, but I definitely don't recall any sort of open kitchen nearby. I don't think it is communal dining OP is looking for...it is a view to the kitchen...
Here is a thread from SF about places to eat overlooking the kitchen, which includes a reference to the Chef's Counter at One Market:
