Vi­sion­ary Sur­round­ings

Where Las Vegas - - WHERE NOW -

In no other city in the world is the com­pe­ti­tion to be bet­ter more fierce than in Las Ve­gas. This is par­tic­u­larly true of the din­ing scene, in which se­cur­ing a top-notch chef is a given, but cre­at­ing an un­for­get­table space is the holy grail. Such is the case with Twist (at left), the only place in the U.S. in which you can en­joy the cui­sine of su­per­star chef Pierre Gag­naire. In ad­di­tion, its perch on the 23rd floor of the Man­darin Ori­en­tal is el­e­gant and charm­ing, full of gor­geous globes and a col­or­ful pal­ette. Oh, and the views! (702) 5908888. And over at En­core, Si­na­tra (above) pays homage to the leg­endary singer with a swank Ital­ian joint, helmed by the mas­ter­ful chef Theo Schoeneg­ger. You won’t for­get it any­time soon.

É BY JOSÉ AN­DRÉS
