Few questions are more urgent than where to eat when you’re traveling to a place with more than two restaurants.
It’s certainly omnipresent for people who are visiting New York. (“Where should I eat?” is a question any local food critic hopes to never hear again.) The city has one of the best and deepest restaurant rosters in the world, and the amount is increasing: in 2017, there were 26,697 restaurants in the city, up from 26,110 in 2016 and roughly 1,500 more places than there were five years ago.
Of course you can make a list of must-try restaurants; that never hurts. But for a city as big and fast moving as New York, having a solid set of strategies to maximize your meals is the expert way to go.
Cheese is a staple of many cultures. The way a region enjoys its cheese can flavor not only its dishes, but can also be a reflection of the way its people approach life. From a hearty Bavarian side dish best enjoyed in a beer garden, to a mild but flavorful Arab delicacy often shared around the table, here are some of the best ways to enjoy cheese while traveling.
Bavaria offers much more than the beers during Oktoberfest. While sitting in a beer garden anywhere in the region, you’ll find the breakfast veal sausage Weiswurst and the popular Indian-influenced Currywurst on the menu. Accompanying them you’ll also often see kaesespaetzle, a popular dish akin to macaroni and cheese, with a gnocchi-like consistency due to its starchy origins. Sampling it, you’ll be rewarded with a delicious, carb-packed snack dripping with Emmentaler cheese and covered in onions. It’s been described as “what macaroni and cheese is trying to be.” The Swiss version may even be an ancestor to the popular American dish. (See other places you can celebrate Oktoberfest.)……Click Here To Keep Reading

Las Vegas is sizzling. And we don’t just mean the summer heat that bakes the city to golden crisp.
A burst of new restaurants, bars and resort rooms has lent some serious sparkle to the city of lights and magic. What follows are some of the new hot spots, not limited to the famed Strip.
Palms Casino Resort is sinking $620 million into a major makeover of the property just off the strip. Art – think Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Dustin Yellin – plays a major part of the upgrade, including at the new Unknown bar where Damien Hirst’s celebrated “The Unknown (Explored, Explained, Exploded)” – a 13-foot-long tiger shark divided into three parts – is the focal point…..Click Here To Keep Reading
In 2016, photographer Marisa Scheinfeld released The Borscht Belt: Revisiting the Remains of America’s Jewish Vacationland, a collection of ghostly photos of the western Catskills that seemed to capture the area’s fate. Once-glorious resorts that populated the mountainous region north and west of New York City in the middle of the last century—the Catskills’ golden age—were now decayed carcasses littering the landscape, with lonely lounge chairs abandoned next to parched Olympic-sized pools.
But a funny thing has happened on the way to the Catskills: Hoteliers started to take notice of the area again. Amid the Catskills’ 35 high peaks and nearly 6,000 square miles—which include waterfalls, ice caves, rocky cliffs, and fly-fishing spots—several of those downtrodden resorts have been reborn or revamped, and shuttered or ailing smaller motels, hotels, guesthouses, and inns—not to mention a major casino complex—have recently opened, or are just about to….Click Here To Keep Reading

Sydney has undergone some pretty drastic changes in the last ten years. As house prices continue to skyrocket, a new, trendier Sydney has emerged, defined by fashionable new spaces where young, moneyed millennials can feel at home. Nowhere is this more evident than in the hotel space. Once upon a time, the city’s hotels mirrored those of any other big – but not Big – city: the standard luxury set, as defined by the Hiltons and Four Seasons of the world, and a middle set of affordable, basic accommodations that stood somewhere between hotel and motel.
Sydney has certainly stepped up its hotel game since then, welcoming a number of luxurious, thoughtfully designed spaces, each with a host of quirky touches that seem to call out to the young in particular. Here are three of the best….Click Here To Keep Reading
