Sky-High Dinners Coming to Las Vegas

Sky-High Dinners Coming to Las Vegas

A new dining experience is coming to Las Vegas, which promises to rise above the rest.

Ground was broken Wednesday for the Dinner in the Sky tower. When finished, the tower will suspend two open-air tables 180 feet in the air. The diners will be strapped to their chairs to enjoy a upscale dinner.

Dinner in the Sky is already established in 40 other countries. This will be the first one in the U.S. and the first one that uses a tower.

"Certainly Las Vegas is perfect for an attraction like this, and also a great dining destination," Kelley Jones Dinner In The Sky Las Vegas said.

The attraction is being built on Polaris Avenue north of Tropicana Avenue. It should be finished by late August or earlier September.

At first, this disturbed us, but a recent visit demonstrated no slippage in the souvlaki or doldrums in the dolmades.

As solid as those standards continue to be, it was two unexpected dishes that brought hosannas to Hera. One was simple grilled octopus (called octopus Tiganito on the menu)

Jerusalem Grill Wows with Exceptional Shawarma, Other Dishes

A kosher restaurant gets high marks from a critic.

As soon as our server at Jerusalem Grill brought us a bowl of warm garbanzo beans sprinkled with cumin and one of pickled vegetables, I began to get a good feeling about the place.
