I’ve been lucky enough to travel quite a bit around the world, but do love visiting places in the United States. When traveling around, I always look for unique, beautiful, and delicious places to eat. However, something that can set a part one place from another is the scenery, architecture, design, and aesthetic. I’ve developed a love and fascination with architecture over the years, and it truly makes any experience that much more special. Follow along below to see my list for The Most Architecturally Stunning U.S. Restaurants you need to visit!
If you love seeing amazing architecture, check out my blog post on The Most Impressive Architecturally Stunning Wineries here.
Aureole Las Vegas
Aureole is located in the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and is recognized as one the best one restaurants in the world. To prove it, they have a four story wine tower that the employees have to be lifted into the air to get wine from their collection of thousands of wine bottles. If you’re a wine lover like me, Aureole is paradise and a visually stunning place to experience.
You’re even able to enjoy the sun and view outside at this hot spot!
Bourbon Steak Nashville
The Bourbon Steak Nashville is one of the best steakhouses there is, done by the famous Michael Mina who I adore! They have the highest quality of beef, along with fresh seafood arriving daily for the best flavor. There is also an award-winning wine collection that you must try for yourself.
