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. A fine French restaurant set high atop the Palms Casino, Alizé lies far enough west of the Strip to offer amazing views of the skyline. André Rochat, of André's Las Vegas fame, runs this remarkable (yet in-need-of-a-makeover) eatery. The Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Rd., West Side, Las Vegas, NV, 89103. 702/951–7000. www.palms.com. Reservations essential.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant. Sheer height isn't everything. This restaurant atop a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower rises 11 stories—nothing special in this town. But this beautifully decorated dining room with its glassed-in walls sits in the middle of the Strip, offering great views of Bellagio, Caesars Palace, CityCenter and several other landmarks. Paris Las Vegas, 3655 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Center Strip, Las Vegas, NV, 89109. 702/948–6937. www.eiffeltowerrestaurant.com. Reservations essential.
MIX. You can enjoy the contemporary French cuisine of world-renowned chef Alain Ducasse in this ultrahip restaurant on the 64th floor of THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. The floor-to-ceiling windows afford unobstructed views all the way up the Strip. Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. S, South Strip, Las Vegas, NV, 89119. 702/632–7200. www.mandalaybay.com/dining. Reservations essential.
Top of the World. The name here says it all. The Top of the World serves decent food, but the main attraction is the revolving dining room, which sits some 800 feet above the Strip and offers positively mesmerizing views. Stratosphere Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, 2000 Las Vegas Blvd. S, North Strip, Las Vegas, NV, 89104. 702/380–7777. www.topoftheworldlv.com. Reservations essential.
