Hovering 800 feet above the Strip on level 106 of the Stratosphere Hotel, Top of the World is the highest restaurant in the city, with a view that nearly makes you forget what’s on your plate. It’s also the only rotating eatery in town, and in an hour and 15 minutes — about the time it takes to go from a grilled portobello and buffalo mozzarella appetizer to an entrée of roasted miso black cod served with ponzu butter sauce, garlic spinach and sautéed baby carrots with ginger to a dessert of flourless lava cake — you’ve seen a full panorama of the city, from the glittering lights to the mountains beyond.
Happily, the food is as satisfying as the view. With the recent hire of Chef de Cuisine Claude Gaty, a specialist in French cuisine, the menu has been re-imagined to feature eclectic, global food with influences ranging from France to Vietnam and even American comfort food. To experience the full range of fare, try the five-course tasting menu, accompanied by a selection of top-rated wines. For those high rollers out there, the $100 Top of the World Martini will make you feel like a king.
