The Dallas skyline is one of my favorite views. There’s no doubt that when we make the hour-long commute to Dallas, my children know we have arrived when they see “the ball,” otherwise known as Reunion Tower.
Five Sixty Restaurant
Once you check in for your reservation, guests take a 68 second elevator ride to the top of the ball, where they are welcomed inside Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck. From the view to the smell of the entrees to the overall atmosphere, you are definitely in for a treat!
After being led to our table and greeted by the waiter and manager, we started with some drinks and the chef brought out a variety of appetizers to enjoy as we took in the view as much as we could. The restaurant does rotate, so you get to enjoy all Dallas has to offer – which is amazing at sunset!
I could have eaten every one of the Crispy Maine Lobster & Shrimp Spring Rolls, but the crab cakes were so good, too! I had to remind myself that entrees were to come!
And boy did they come! The chef suggested a few entrees, and my husband and I were happy to try them! My husband’s favorite was the Crispy Quail, and I loved the New York Strip! My children enjoyed the Roasted Chicken. Everything was presented with the perfect touch and tasted amazing! I may have offered to take the chef home with us!
Thinking there was no way we’d have room for dessert, the chef described a few options, and my belly was screaming “try them!” My sweet tooth was happy to comply, and my children didn’t argue either!
From Cheesecake to a Bittersweet Chocolate Soufflé, my mind was spinning with the selections sitting in front of me. The soufflé was prepared table-side, meaning the warm cup of chocolate indulgence was gently opened at our table so the waiter could place a scoop of gelato and whip cream into the confection. Oh. My. Goodness. I didn’t want to leave.
