The atmosphere and views are the main attraction at Vertigo, perched atop the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel. Acrophobics beware: tables are placed close to the edge, leaving little more than a glass wall between patrons and the endless city view. The restaurant, one of the world’s tallest, serves inventive Asian-inspired cuisine. Signature dishes include Wagyu tenderloin served with bone marrow and roasted cherry tomato, as well as the Vertigo appetizer plate, an assortment of small bites such as seared bay scallops and lobster spring rolls.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
