If fabulous food and beverages are a must-have for any weekend getaway, then look no further than the City of Brotherly Love. Whether your palate has a penchant for vibrant Latin American fare or cozy French cuisine, whether you're an oenophile looking to swirl, sniff and sip your way around the globe or you’d rather sample farm-to-glass cocktails, Philly’s got it all this fall. (With the exception of Bolo, which is a short taxi or Uber ride away and definitely worth the trip, the rest of these spots are all within walking distance of each other.)
Exclusive Sailing with Global Traveler
From Santoríni to Dubai to New York, some hotels just have that “it” factor that draws visitors far and wide. For some hotels it’s their proximity to popular landmarks and attractions, for others it’s their amenities. But these hotels have something few can claim: a true room with a view.
Nashville’s once-modest skyline continues to evolve as its luxury market grows. Lavish hotel properties are added to the landscape while acclaimed chefs stake claim in the robust culinary scene and premier cultural offerings round out the city’s repertoire.
Two historic Craftsman-style homes connected by a newly built third extension will take on a new life as the 19-room The Chloe Nashville in 2024. Developed to aesthetically harmonize with both Nashville’s past and future under the direction of Nashville-based Remick Architecture, guestrooms range from 400 to 817 square feet and start at $375 per night, with its top suite running $950 per night. The architecture and interiors maintain the original homes’ residential feel while incorporating modern and traditional design elements reflective of Nashville’s character and history.
The relatively new Il Tinello East, opened in September 2022, descends from Il Tinello West, the old-school Italian restaurant operating across town on West 56th Street for 38 years. For folks working or living on the east side of Manhattan however, finding a new Il Tinello on East 46th Street was like a gift from heaven. Il Tinello East is the perfect “new” old-school Italian restaurant for a mid-week business lunch with a client or two, or a dinner with your best friend, sister/brother or parent. Perfect, that is, if everyone is in the mood for a quiet restaurant meal in Manhattan (a rarity these days) with friendly waiters in white gloves and exceptionally good traditional Italian cuisine on the menu.
