Las Vegas Feature


Dining Rooms with a View

Bombastic, curious, and gaudy, the Las Vegas Strip has one of the most dramatic and recognizable skylines in the world. One memorable way to take in the incredible views is to dine at one of the city's sky-scraping restaurants. Keep in mind that the best views are often had from settings off the Strip, rather than right in the middle of it. You'll probably need to make a reservation early at these literally high-profile dining rooms.

Alizé. This fine French restaurant with soaring glass walls set high atop the Palms Resort offers one of the best views of the city, including the Strip. At the helm is André Rochat, a French expatriate who's been in Las Vegas long enough to have earned the title of home-grown celebrity chef. The seasonal menu might begin with Rochat's seared foie gras with caramelized pear and vanilla custard or his rich Maine lobster bisque. Entrees include his signature Dover sole Veronique, veal loin with goat cheese ravioli or Prime rib eye with smoked potatoes. Pre-theater, a la carte, and tasting menus are available. The Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Rd., West Side, Las Vegas, NV, 89103. 702/951–7000. Reservations essential.
