Las Vegas is the only place other than Paris that can give you dinner with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Guy Savoy’s restaurant at Caesars Palace serves à la carte and tasting menus to suit every appetite.

When Park MGM reopened after its refurbishments, this restaurant was one of the first food spaces to open its doors. This isn’t like the other steakhouses you’ll find in the country.

13. Ocean Prime Las Vegas

  • Rating: 5/5
  • Cuisine: European
  • Website: here
  • District: The Strip
  • Average check: $50 or more per person.

What we love about Las Vegas is that it’s a metropolis of some of the country’s best culinary destinations. Although there are almost 20 locations across the United States, this Ocean Prime restaurant is a new take on seafood and steak. The 2,500-square-foot rooftop terrace gives you some of the best views of Vegas’ most recognizable locations as an al fresco dining option with a twist. Have your camera ready if you order a seafood tower, as it’ll come out presented with dry ice smoke.

Think of spaghetti with Japanese aromatic herbs and spicy bruschetta served alongside pasta with briny uni and a creamy sauce that melts in your mouth. This destination is another you’ll find in Chinatown for a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
