Since 1969, restaurant, hotel, travel & other witty reviews by a handpicked, worldwide team of discerning professionals—and your views, too.


Dear Reader,

Summertime, the livin' is easy, and we’ve got everything you need to make the dog days of August sizzle―while staying cool. The best ice cream from coast to coast will keep things sweet and the temps temperate. And if you’re feeling adventurous, make your own icy treats at home. Just in time for the summer meltdown, Pops! serves up more than 100 recipes for those sweet on learning how to make home-made popsicle treats.

On the wine front, rosés are better than ever and we’ve compiled what we think are the top 10 rosés right now. Worried about your health with all that delicious indulging? Garlic is among nature’s super foods, so be generous with this potent, pungent bulb in your summertime dishes. Tea, too, is a powerful ally in staying healthy, especially green tea such as SÁ Hoji Cha Roasted Green Tea. It’s perfect for those sensitive to caffeine.

Feel like leaving town? If baby needs new shoes, visit lady luck at one of our Top 10 Casino Hotels Worldwide. For more serious pursuits, such as planning a company seminar, be sure to check out our Top 10 Conference Hotels Worldwide . And if you’ve done all the poolside lounging you can stomach (or—egads!—had to work all summer), a spa stay may be in order, such as at The Potting Shed Spa at Blantyre in New England’s summertime cultural capital.

Or maybe it’s time to get out of dodge with the whole family, Griswold-style, to a theme park? Just an idea. Then our Top 10 Family Sedans could come in handy. But if you’re thinking crossover (rather than cross-country), the Infiniti FX50 AWD is a sexy, powerful and techno-savvy luxury beast―and maybe more your style.

And while summer movies are usually less-than-acceptable action blockbusters, we’ve reviewed some good films just for laughs like Judd Apatow’s Funny People—for that most satisfying pairing of dinner and a movie.

There’s plenty more we have for you online, including August’s culinary events calendar, restaurant ratings, thousands of hotel reviews, and our blog, but we also want to hear from you. Post a comment on our forum, or review a restaurant or hotel on our site for our millions of visitors to read. And don’t forget to visit us on and Twitter.

Enjoy your summer!
