High-rolling action, sprawling desert views, epic live entertainment — Las Vegas is, famously, a lot. To add to the list, it’s also a smorgasbord of culinary must-trys. Feeling like French cuisine? You’ve got it. Shareable plates and high-end bubblies? Raise a glass and dig in. How about Hawaiian mahi-mahi? Believe it or not, Vegas has it. But the best thing on the menu has to be the incredible views. Find sights and bites you’ll never forget with these five Las Vegas favorites.
Tasty Bites, Bright Lights, & Las Vegas Views
TOP OF THE WORLD
When it comes to panoramic Las Vegas views, accept no substitutes. The Top of the World restaurant is an award winner that serves up high-end seafood and steak options. Oh, and it happens to sit atop an 800-foot rotating tower.
Pop the cork on a charmingly casual French bistro offering upscale dinner, lunch, and “blunch” options. Enjoy the live music, sample the extensive wine selection, and soak up views of Lake Jacqueline, standing in for the Seine, as you take a breather from the bright lights and bustle of the Strip. Best of all, Marché Bacchus is also a wine shop, so you can buy and bring home your favorite bottle.
EIFFEL TOWER RESTAURANT
We can’t mention “French” and “Las Vegas restaurants with a view” without also touching on this icon. Though not quite as famous as its Parisian counterpart, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant is a must-visit on the Las Vegas Strip. Give yourself a postcard-perfect view of the Bellagio Fountains and the city's vibrant nightlife. Take your pick of classic French cuisine, often with a modern touch unique to this Vegas staple. Plus, brunch is always a good call with a three-course menu sure to start your day off trés bien.
OK, so maybe it’s more of a light bites and craft cocktails kind of night. No problem. Skybar is famous for expert mixologists, highly craveable fare, and views of the Las Vegas Strip that’s likely to leave your jaw on the floor. A standout is the lounge’s inspired cocktails menu, which spans influences from Vegas’s Spanish origins to Japanese-themed favorites and an homage to Old Blue Eyes himself.
When it comes to fresh seafood, a city surrounded by desert may not jump to mind. But with some of the finest fish and shellfish the world has to offer, Chef David Middleton’s Lakeside is ready to overflow your expectations. Sample the live European langoustines, line-caught Dover sole, or Hawaiian mahi mahi. Then, enjoy your front-row view of the Lake of Dreams light and water show complete with 5,500 LEDs and a waterfall.
