    In Lisbon there are scores of fado music shows, pretty much everywhere you look — but if you know anything about me, you’ll understand that the last thing I wanted to see was a show for tourists. So I found Tasco do Jaime da Graça. It’s now one of my Top Ten Travel Experiences. What’s…

    LOS ANGELES | Restaurant | POT

    While I was working in Los Angeles, art directing Food Network show, “Daphne Dishes“, I got the opportunity to eat at some fabulous restaurants.

    Rekyjavik | Forétta Barinn

    I left design store Netagerdin Work & Shop fully intending to walk directly back to my hotel…but right next door, in the old fishing net factory, was an inviting, designer-y restaurant calling to me to come in.

  • Bellagio | Barchetta Ristorante

    Bellagio | Barchetta Ristorante

    On the shores of Lake Como is a charming little village called Bellagio.  Steep steps lead up the mountain to tiny lanes buzzing with activity.  The garden terrace of Barchetta Ristorante is a tranquil respite, high above the madding crowds.
