Modern Bistro

The culinary anchor of the historic Union Club Hotel at Purdue University, 8Eleven celebrates the trailblazing tradition of two of NASA’s most daring aerospace programs, Gemini 8 and Apollo 11, as well as the missions’ command pilot, Purdue alum Neil Armstrong. We’re proud to honor our namesake and proud to be recognized as one of West Lafayette, Indiana’s top restaurants.
