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


Dear Reader,

We don’t need an excuse to eat seafood any time of the year, but it just so happens that October is National Seafood Month, and in that spirit we reeled in the Best Seafood Restaurants near you as well as the Top 10 Seafood Restaurants in the U.S. The national seafood designation dates back to the 1940s, when fishermen experienced a slow period, and the National Fisheries Institute figured an official seafood “holiday” would boost sales.

If you want to cook crab, shrimp or bouillabaisse in this or any month, check out our reviews of Roy's Fish & Seafood and Pike Place Public Market Seafood Book. Or combine your love of cooking with travel and enjoy our round-up of Top 10 Hotel Culinary Schools, all luxurious digs that offer lessons in the art of cookery. And to impress dinner guests with your wine savvy, here’s a guide to the Best Wine and Seafood Pairings.

If you prefer to see your fish swimming about in the deep blue instead of on your plate, take a look at our Top 10 Diving Resorts Worldwide, featuring eclectic destinations to quench your undersea thirst. Also for globetrotters, our 72 Hours in Bangkok and Bangkok Business Travel Guide lead you to world-class dining and non-stop bar hopping, meditation, golf and more—basically all you need to know for the perfect trip, whether it’s for business or pleasure.

Bangkok is known for massage (the legit kind), but you don’t have to travel that far. New Yorkers and visitors to NYC can get a Wine Maker's Massage at Caudalie Spa at the newly refurbished The Plaza in Manhattan, offering vinothérapie in serene, sculpture-enhanced environs.

In the automotive world, Chevrolet has reincarnated the Camaro into the sexiest pony car of the year:  the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro LT, our car of the month. And, daydreaming autophiles and multi-millionaires alike can rely on the list of the world's Top 10 Fastest Cars to find a speedster that's just right for them. Just be sure not to sample one of our Top 10 Fall Beers at the same time.

October is also the month of goblins and ghouls and we dare you to brave our Top 10 Scary Movies, a list that will have you never look at a placid wave, a roadside motel or a plate of fava beans the same way again.

Be sure to visit us on facebook and twitter this month and find more good stuff online, including our blog, restaurant reviews, October’s culinary events calendar, hotel write-ups, travel features and so much more. Or review a restaurant or hotel on our site for our millions of visitors to read.

Until next time, when we’ll be talking turkey!
