Located in the famed Marais district of Paris, this is one hotel that’s worth its weight in terrazzo. The rooms are gorgeous. The balconies are gorgeous. The restaurant is gorgeous. The bar is gorgeous. And of course, the neighborhood is gorgeous.

The Dabney

Washington, District of Columbia
With dishes like their Maryland crab salad with brown butter vinaigrette, meyer lemon, walnuts and honey crisp apples, it’s easy to see why The Dabney is a big hit in the DC restaurant scene. Check it out if you’re into great wines and delicious food served in an inviting space.

The Goods

Carlsbad, California
When the wall reads, “glaze and grind,” you can bet your local donut and coffee shop is a place you’ll also want to hang around for a while. New to Carlsbad, this family-run gem serves up some of the best sweet treats in town.

Hotel EMC2

Chicago, Illinois

Just opened this summer, EMC2 is Chi-Town’s newest addition to the hotel scene. The rooms are gorgeous, the downtown location is in the middle of everything and the brilliant bar and restaurant – dubbed Albert, as in Einstein – makes an amalgamation of art, science and food. Epic.

Rome, Italy
A classic in the world of Rome’s luxury hotels, Hotel Eden has recently undergone over a year of renovations and reopened to acclaim. Drinks in the garden are sure to bring the Eden like qualities of this paradise to life.

Chicago hits the list yet again! Pacific Standard Time is welcoming, bright and full of life. From the hearth and harvest based menus to the light and airy dining space, this new restaurant almost feels more Cali than Chicago, and that’s kind of the point.

A whole restaurant dedicated to Red King Crab? Yep, this is real life, people. Calling all crab heads, this newly opened London crab shrine is for you.

Palizzi Social Club

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Gotta love the rules at this old school Italian joint: no loud or obnoxious behavior and no flip-flops. Where else but Philly? The social club has been around for nearly a century but recently reopened with a new owner (the nephew of the O.G., of course). It’s members only, but maybe you or your cousins know a guy, eh?

Boundless Plains

New York, New York
Aussies doing coffee in Tribeca? Certainly worth checking out, especially since Australia is a coffee mecca. Boundless Plains may be a newcomer, but we think this is one coffee house and takeaway spot that will stick around.

Eight Tables

San Francisco, California

San Francisco has its fair share of delicious Chinese restaurants, but this one may just take the cake (err, dumpling?). With a focus on demystifying Chinese gastronomy from the heart of SF’s bustling Chinatown, Eight Tables offers an emporium of food, drinks and retail that go beyond its 38-seat dining space.

Four Seasons Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan
There’s a tea house, an 800-year-old Ikeniwa garden, a gorgeous indoor spa, and a poolside brasserie at this new Kyoto Four Seasons Resort. With views of the gardens, courtyard, the city, or the Myoho-in Temple, it’s nearly impossible to ignore the grandeur of this great city from the comfort of your ultra-plush bed.
