the editors’ destinations to watch 2019

This is the first issue of the transatlantic Traveler, created by teams in New York and London. Everything in it is gold, gold, gold. Not-finger, or-digger, or tooth, or rush…nor really, I hope, gold as in brash. But gold as in exceptional. Gold as in classic. I’m asked all the time what my favorite places are, my best hotels, so here are a few. I can’t give you my favorite moments, because those are the ones that take place in the places in between the actual places, the results of happy accidents. But consider the following: Brown + Hudson, a tour operator that goes to extraordinary degrees to arrange entirely bespoke trips, layered with top-notch experiences. It will cost you, but you get the feeling it costs the boss, Philippe,…

the city to check into new orleans

What is that amazing smell? In New Orleans, you’ll pick up wafts of chicory, spilled rum, and warm beignets—but in the lobby of Hotel Peter and Paul in the Marigny, it’s more like…gardenias. This is one of the most anticipated hotel openings in a city overrun with fusty properties. Hotel Peter and Paul is actually a bundle of buildings: a 19th-century Catholic church, schoolhouse, convent, and rectory reimagined by Ash NYC with gingham drapes woven in Switzerland and antique furniture shipped from Europe. The Eliza Jane near the French Quarter has taken over the space that once housed the printing presses for The Times-Picayune. It has a vintage aesthetic—exposed brick in the hallways, subway tile in the bathrooms—but still feels fresh. And this spring, the Ace Hotels team opens Maison…

the next great food scene valle de guadalupe

This boulder-strewn sweep of Baja California has been luring wine lovers and weekending West Coasters for some time (it’s just a 90-minute drive from the U.S. border). Now it’s earning itself the lofty billing of Mexico’s Napa Valley for its architect-designed tasting rooms and complex bottles—many of them innovatively organic, biodynamic, and minimum intervention. The foodie landscape has been maturing as well, drawing on farm-to-table ingredients and seafood from the Pacific. One of the area’s best-loved chefs is Javier Plascencia, who set up in the valley in 2012 when it first turned heads. His Finca Altozano now encompasses the original outdoor grill restaurant, a tortas truck, an ice-cream shop, and the pop-up dinner series Animalón under a 100-year-old oak tree. Close by, Finca La Divina is his beautiful four-bedroom B&B,…
