MARCH 2011 TASTES NEWSLETTER
Going green is easy in March. All you need is beer. And perhaps a serving of corned beef. The T-shirt sporting a giant shamrock is optional. Whichever way you fancy celebrating on March 17, be sure to check out our St. Patrick's Day Guide featuring the best restaurants, bars and pubs for celebrating from coast to coast, the Top 10 Irish Pubs in the U.S., St. Patrick's Day Parades & Events from Las Vegas to D.C. and the Top 10 Irish Beers. We even have a healthy recipe for that Irish staple, cabbage. Spruce it up with kale and faro for a super nutritious soup!
If you yearn for full-on immersion in Eire, plan an escape to Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort, an exquisite, 16th-century property set among woodlands on a private island in Ireland. This exquisite castle and nine others can be found on our list of Top 10 Castle Hotels in the world. For more luxe accommodation ideas, be sure to consult our list of Top 10 Caribbean Resorts, featuring Ladera Resort in St. Lucia, a rainforest sanctuary that has mastered the art of al fresco living, and our Top 10 Brunch Hotels, which includes The Waldorf=Astoria. Sunday brunch at the hotel's Peacock Alley will make you feel as if you've returned to the days of Edith Wharton and Henry James.
If you're looking for another great place to eat in NYC, make a reservation at Sirio Maccioni's Le Cirque, a timeless place that has had enormous influence on the city's fine dining landscape. On the other side of the country, you can indulge at Kerry Simon's LA Market. Our own Sophie Gayot recently caught up with chef de cuisine Nona Sivley, who happens to be the winner of season 8 of Hell's Kitchen. Learn more about the young toque and see some of her delicious dishes on our blog!
Then sip a cancer-fighting green tea such as Teavana's Blackberry Mojito Green Tea or incorporate watercress into your diet. This humble leaf boasts a number of great health benefits, as will a stay at Gurney's Seawater Spa, offering thalasso (sea) therapy in Montauk, NY.
