Just get a table by the window…

Whether it’s a thrilling- lit up city skyline, rugged mountains or just miles of natural beauty, some restaurants have an unfair advantage. Perhaps that’s why they add $10 to every dish. If you’re seeking a meal where the food must intensely battle to not be overlooked by the surroundings, you’re going to love one of these amazing restaurants – in even more incredible places. Just be sure to bring an extra $10 (or more) to secure a window seat…
