Top of the World, Las Vegas


Happy Monday guys! I finally found the time to empty out the 3,000 pictures sitting around on my iPhone this evening, and came across a few meals I thought would be fun to share. This past Christmas was a bit of a misfit holiday. My company recently moved to Las Vegas and there were a few of us without family close enough to visit, so we decided to spend it together. Our mission was an exciting dinner and unique dinner, which we found all the way on top of the Stratosphere at Top of the World! If you haven’t heard of Top of the World before, let me enlighten you. It’s the spinning (yes, spinning) restaurant located 844 feet up in the air on the top of the Stratosphere hotel. It’s the only revolving restaurant in LV and it’s quite the experience! The panoramic views are absolutely incredible which you see while spinning 360 degrees every half hour or so. The service was terrific and the food was definitely some of the best I’ve had in LV so far.

My Selection:

Baby Kale with Spanish Manchego, Roasted Parsnip & Apple – Granny Smith apple, candied Marcona almonds and honey spiced vinaigrette

Roasted California Mary’s Farm Free Range Chicken Breast – Parsnip & apple purée, cippolini onion, natural jus & wild blueberry relish

Gnocchi with Kale Pesto & Teardrop Tomatoes

Flash Fried Shishito Peppers & Fleur De Sel

Chocolate Lovers Dream – dark chocolate teardrop shell wrapped around a moist chocolate cake, Grand Marnier and semisweet chocolate mousse

Menu Highlights: The Gnocchi was pretty sweet which you usually don’t find. It took me by surprise at first but it ended up being one of my favorite parts of the meal. I would order the chicken again just for the wild blueberry relish; amazing. The kale salad was also robust and really flavorful.
Overall the meal was pretty spectacular. It’s definitely more of a destination event vs your everyday dinner spot, but that makes it great for your next trip or if you live in LV and want to impress your next set of guests! In addition to the revolving resturant, you can also head up to the observation deck afterwards and spend some time on the rides. They have a few terrifying selections including a heart pounding ‘Sky Jump‘ that literally has you jumping off the side of the building (note* you can see this happening from your dinner table!)
