The Vegas High-Dining Experience

Walking into Mix, Alain Ducasse's stunning new restaurant, is like walking into a glass of Champagne. Thousands of fragile Venetian glass bubbles dangle from the high ceiling. The effect of that half-a-million-dollar "chandelier" is sheer magic that makes you want to dance across the stenciled glass floor.

Every table at this restaurant in the sky has a view from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Sixty-four floors above the Strip, at the top of THEHotel (the luxe new hotel in Mandalay Bay), it feels as if you're flying like Wendy and Peter Pan right over those blocks of brilliant neon. The truly lucky might snag one of the handful of tables out on the balcony with its heart-stopping view or a romantic table for two enclosed in a cocoon lined in silver leaf.

Las Vegas has always been well over the top, but with the opening of Mix from six-star Ducasse (three for his eponymous Paris restaurant, three for the one in Monte Carlo) and the power lineup of high-end restaurants in Steve Wynn's new casino, Wynn Las Vegas, dining in Vegas has reached an opulence that stands out even in this city of ridiculous excess.
