Top of the World at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod Debuts New Menu by Chef Bradley Manchester

The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod’s iconic 360-degree rotating Top of the World restaurant has introduced several new dishes created by Bradley Manchester, Golden Entertainment, Inc.’s corporate executive chef.


“We took time during the city’s quarantine to further elevate the guest experience at The STRAT, which is superbly demonstrated in new menu enhancements at Top of the World,” said Steve Arcana, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Golden Entertainment, Inc. “Chef Bradley has been hard at work meticulously crafting each new dish and we’re thrilled to reveal this new menu, which I believe is our best, yet.”


Highlighting rich flavors and seasonal ingredients for fall, Manchester’s new selections include starters, steaks and seafood dishes. Most notable are the steaks, which include a 12-ounce Tajima Wagyu ribeye from Australia; a 22-ounce bone-in ribeye from Black Angus, Colorado; a 16-ounce dry aged bone-in New York strip from Greater Omaha, Nebraska; a 10-ounce filet from Harris Ranch, California; and a top chop for two, featuring a market-select Tomahawk presented on a butcher block.   Accompaniments include Bearnaise, red wine reduction, peppercorn, blue cheese crust and truffle gouda cheese fondue.


New seafood selections include shellfish linguini, made with lobster, shrimp and crab tossed in a fragrant tomato diavolo sauce; pan roasted sea scallops served atop a carrot and miso puree and drizzled in citrus and soy butter; and an Australian lobster tail.


New starters include The Raviolo, a raviolo stuffed with ricotta creamed spinach, asparagus and egg yolk in a brown butter and balsamic sauce; stuffed mushrooms, served with red wine braised short ribs, truffle cheese, shaved black truffles and topped with butter and herb sauce; and calamari “fries,” served with sweet soy, spicy yuzu aioli, crushed peanuts and tōgarashi spices. Manchester has also added oysters on the half shell, served with cocktail sauce and black pepper mignonette.


New side dishes include a picturesque, one-pound lobster mac and cheese, served in a lobster shell with Maine lobster, lobster cream and breadcrumbs; crispy Yukon potatoes, served with bacon and blue cheese glaze; and butter braised wild mushrooms.


Top of the World has also added new cocktail selections, including an Empress 75, made with Empress 1908 gin, fresh lemon juice and champagne; and a salted caramel pretzel martini, made with Skrewball peanut butter whiskey, Godiva dark chocolate liqueur and Monin espresso syrup.


An award-winning chef, Manchester brings more than 25 years of culinary expertise to his position as corporate executive chef for Golden Entertainment, Inc. In addition to Top of the World, he oversees culinary operations for the company’s 10 casino resorts and 66 PT’s Taverns.
