In this issue:

Hotel Napoleon Suite Small

In Hotels & Resorts: In the Golden Triangle, at the very heart of Paris, just steps away from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées, is the 5-star Hotel Napoleon. The charming story of the hotel’s history seems to have been torn right out of a romance novel. It began with a rich Russian entrepreneur who immigrated to France in 1915.

Graceful Rose Strawberries Small

In the Restaurants section: The Graceful Rose, a family owned restaurant, is a happening place with a well appointed dining room, flattering lighting and a gracious ambiance. Chef Joe Dimaggio, a master of gastronomy whose career spans many continents and cuisines, takes great pride in pleasing our palates with a fusion of tangy, salty and garlicky courses. By Babbie DeDerian   Read More...

Hilton Sydney Health Club Small

Additionally in Hotels & Resorts: If "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones," as the saying goes, don't carry even so much as a pebble when you check into the glorious glass box that is the Hilton Sydney. The four lower public floors are a transparent showcase housing the reception desk, and public rooms in gleaming clear transparent glass. By Sharon King Hogue  Read More..

Rancho La Puerta Yoga Hike Small

In the Spas section: Let’s get down to why this has been the winner of Travel and Leisure’s “World’s Best Destination Spa” award for several years in a row. Rancho La Puerta is spread out beautifully on uniquely landscaped pathways; you walk through flowering gardens, cacti, and waving grasses on the way to your room. By Norma Davidoff        Read More...

France Lautrec Museum Topiary Small

In Destinations: We were invited to visit friends in the Sud de France, conjuring visions of trendy beach resorts, film festivals, and visiting celebrities chased by paparazzi seeking photo ops. But there is another Sud; overshadowed by snow capped peaks of the  Pyrénées, vistas of verdant fields and perfectly symmetrical vineyards, as far as the eye can see. By Barbara Angelakis      Read More...

France le Sud Small

In the Gastronomy section: We ate our way through le Sud. We spent the last two weeks of April in Southern France, and we focused our attention mostly on the towns and villages of Languedoc, Roussillon and Provence. During this trip, I was reminded how good food can taste when produced by caring local farmers and cooked by traditionally minded local restaurant cooks. By Manos Angelakis  Read More...

The Dorito Effect Small

In the Bookshelf: If you ever wondered why the food you prepare in your own kitchen doesn’t taste as good as your mother’s cooking did, or why it costs so much money to eat in a top rated restaurant, the answer can be easily found in a book that Mark Schatzker recently penned called “The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor”. By Manos Angelakis                  Read More...

Five Interesting Bottles Small

In the Oeno File section: I received five very interesting bottles -- two from California, one from Arizona, one from Portugal and one from Priorat, Spain. They are all excelantly crafted wines, beautifully aromatic and delicious, from good vineyards, yet all of them are properly priced in line with other producers of their area.
