I still find it an astonishing sight. Just before I wind back up on 235, the lights of the ballpark and the setting sun to my left, I marvel at the colors of the SkyDance bridge and the soft glow of the Devon Tower peak. At some point, I suppose the vision won't give me the same pause, awe replaced by familiarity, but right now that's difficult to imagine. And in just over a couple months, I will get the opportunity to dine in the top of that downtown wonder, provided I get on the phone now.
Vast, the fine-dining restaurant to occupy the tower's top two floors, is scheduled to open October 24th, and reservations are currently being accepted. The pre-opening reservation line is (405) 702-7262, and I'm guessing they are already booked for a number of dates. So call soon. The Vast concept is from Skirvin Hotel chef Andrew Black, and the menu will feature American fare such as steaks and seafood. According to reports from last spring, prices will be in line with other top-end Oklahoma City restaurants.
And if you're interested in working at Vast, there's a job fair this Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Devon rotunda area.
