Macarons in Bed

That’s Macarons in Bed, not mayhem…get your mind out of the gutter. Macarons in Bed are not only a sweet luxury en suite, they’re also the new hotel ranking system from the gorgeous team behind this tasty blog of wanderlust. Along with each sometimes sarcastic, sometimes overly passionate hotel write-up, a number of macarons will…

The Bygone- Baltimore

Let Bygones be Bygones, and that’s just what we did when test driving this 29th floor resto atop of The Four Seasons. First stop, cocktails! The bar spans the harbor side of the restaurant and would be just perfect for a sunset; unfortunately, we picked a rather grey day for our visit and missed out……

The Village Hotel- Bristol

Bristol was… Bristol? I’m really not sure how else to describe the cold, windy, rainy, industrial city. Parked for a week! on the outskirts of the city for a training, I really didn’t experience much of Bristol, but I did see every inch of The Village Hotel and can confirm that this is quite a…

Duck, Duck, Goose- Baltimore

On a recent trip to Baltimore, my colleague and I had the very difficult task of testing several restaurants and bars for upcoming events that we will be hosting. We stumbled into Duck, Duck, Goose accidentally one evening. A neighboring barman pointed us to some cocktail lounge called ‘Rye.’ We saw a sign for Rye…

Toque!- Montreal

Like a billion years ago, the ex and I spend a cold weekend in Montreal and had what was probably one of our first real splurge dinners- a whimsical tasting menu that was So.Much.Fun. As this most recent trip had me in Montreal on the coldest weekend of the year, there was literally nothing else…

Maggie Oaks- Montreal

Ok, so the William Gray was great, but how was the restaurant? Though it didn’t perform amazingly on the Google, I’m happy to say that it was really great too! In the four meals I enjoyed in Montreal, three were at Maggie Oaks. Because cold arsed Canada. Lunch day 1: Simple green salad and a…

Hotel William Gray- Montreal

After waiting two years for a certain customer meeting, the gang was finally in Montreal doing the damn thing. Naturally, they’d wanted to meet us on Thanksgiving, because Canada… so we agreed to a couple days before Christmas instead. I knew everyone was exhausted when they let me choose the hotel – William Gray. A…

Hawksmoor Edinburgh

Gearing up to head back across the pond tomorrow, so I wanted to share an Edinburgh and London mainstay that is a staple in my travel diet, The Hawksmoor. I was staying above this favorite of mine last week and was so happy to not bundle up in a coat and head out into the…

Kimpton Charlotte Square – Edinburgh

A recent few day stint in Edinburgh found myself at the Kimpton Charlotte Square in Edinburgh which is really a series of renovated townhouses, decorated in a modern/garden/Moroccan style whose vibe I could only wish for in my living room. After a brief mix-up with the car park, I was delighted to find all of…

Dishoom- Edinburgh

In the interest of Thanksgiving and a bunch of food related posts about to fill your feed and stomachs, let me join the club, but with a quick trip to India via recap of my recent experience at Dishoom in Edinburgh. While Dishoom has about nine locations in the UK and even while Mindy Kaling…

El Catrin- Geneva

I’m not sure what it is about Geneva restos, but so far nothing has blown the minds of myself or my colleagues. El Catrin was no exception which was a disappointment since it came highly recommended by a local colleague. We arrived on a Wednesday night where the restaurant was quite fun in ambiance and…

Balthasar- Gland, Switzerland

Meal after mediocre meal in Switzerland lead my crew and self to Balthasar, a steakhouse in the neighboring town of Gland, Switzerland. I was instantly delighted by only speaking French to the restaurant’s reservations department. Upon entry, we were greeted with drippy candle, a friendly host, and rows and rows of cups full of gummy…
