This is my Vegas go-to restaurant. The menu is not overdone, i.e. good selection but not so large that the kitchen is in mass production mode. We ordered a 8oz A5 Wagyu strip to share as an app. One bite and it ruined any other steak I will ever eat again. Recommend any of the […] read more»

Rise and Shine to a brand new experience of luxury and sophistication at Tower 23. The scenic beauty of the beaches from the hotel itself is worth the price of admission to the swank hotel.
