3-Course Dinner at 71 Above, atop the U.S. Bank Tower, August 28, 2016

The highly anticipated 71 Above opened at the end of July, and back in late August, my friends and I were able to enjoy dinner with amazing views and wonderful ambiance.  Chef Vartan Abgaryan helmed the kitchen, after having left Cliff’s Edge several months ago.

It was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable dinners I’ve had in a long time, mainly because of the way the dining rooms were constructed, to absorb noise.  That kept the noise level relatively low, despite the fact all the tables were filled.  In addition, the pacing of the service and those amazing views also helped.

Entrance to elevators to 71 Above from the OUE Skyspace level.
