ABC, Fondamenta Toletta, 1169, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy
Osteria Enoteca ai Artisti in Venice served the best pasta I have ever tasted. Once wasn't enough—I had to go back to this place again during my stay in Venice. The osteria boasts a great view, great atmosphere, great people, and most importantly,...

Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Near the base of the landmark Rialto Bridge, the historic Rialto Market is well worth a wander. Seek it out in the early morning when it provides an authentic local experience (and awesome social-media ops), with fishmongers hawking their fresh...
Marinero, Brisas de Zicatela, Oax., Mexico
Brad's Split Coconut has been going strong for over 12 years in Puerto Escondido, and its latest location under a set of shady palm trees on Marinero Beach is its best. Grab a plastic chair, dig your toes into the sand, and dive into a rib dinner,...

As the Hudson river snaked around Constitution Island, 55 miles north of Manhattan, I imagined that I was an intrepid sailor on a Dutch East India company vessel sailing around the bend 400 years ago. But not for long. As waves lashed around me I...

1411 NY-212, Saugerties, NY 12477, USA
Being a newcomer to Woodstock, NY, I was constantly being amazed by the authenticity of the place. From the people, to the food, to the environment itself, everything is so real in Woodstock. So when I sat down to dine at what the locals call...

While in town for a wedding we enjoyed dinner the night before at this quaint, historic tavern. Built in the 1860's, it was taken under new management 2 years ago and offers a great ambiance with a big wood bar, craft cocktails & beer, pub food...

While spending a long summer weekend in Greenport and visiting some of the larger wineries on the north fork of Long Island, we found this small winery run - as the name implies - by one woman and her daughter. This is the winery's tasting room.
