Tallest/highest restaurants downtown?

Awhile ago I went to a restaurant downtown in one of the high rises. i can't even remember which restaurant it was, but it wasn't in the Bonaventure. Any ideas? Anyone have some suggestions for some high rise dining in LA?

  1. Takami is relatively new, but it's on a high rise. 811 Wilshire.

    1. The City Club is located at the top of the Wells Fargo building...I believe top floor.

        I think the City Club has the best food of the downtown business clubs, but it is a private club, and I think you need to be with a member to get in. The view is spectacular.

      2. if it was a while ago, it may have been windows which is now defunct.

          Windows was located at the top of the Transamerica Bldg. on 32nd. The food was mediocre at best.

          The City Club on Bunker Hill has a commanding view of LA, at the top of The Wells Fargo Bldg. Popular wedding venue.

          Takami & Elevate Lounge is in the 811 Wilshire bldg.

            When did Windows close? I was there for Valentine's Day 2007.

          2. waht about West. I mean, it isn't the one you're trying to remember, but it is atop a building with good views.

            1. You might be thinking of the Floor 50 Restaurant - used to be located on the 50th floor of the Bank of America Plaza - which is now City National Plaza - on Fig and 5th.
