Alex Moore Before going freelance and working with outlets such as Wallpaper, Condé Nast Traveler and The Telegraph, Moore was a staff writer at Robb Report UK. For the US edition, he spoke to Richard Garriott about his extraordinary journeys, from outer space to the bottom of the sea (“Just Another Guy in a Suit,” p. 92). “Richard’s story is just the most perfect example of triumphing over the naysayer,” he says. “He really isn’t your archetypal explorer, and that’s exactly what makes his life so incredibly compelling.” Saul Martinez A freelance photographer and videographer, Martinez shot pro golfer Dustin Johnson at the Grove XXIII Golf Club in Florida for the August issue (“The Answers,” p. 44). Throughout the day, the two chatted about their sons. “We bonded over the sleepless nights that…

editor’s letter

It’s become an imperative, something we will never take for granted again. So this is not so much a travel issue as an exploration one. And who better to inspire us than the new president of the Explorers Club, Richard Garriott. If you don’t move in hard-core exploratory circles (or equally hard-core gaming ones) Garriott’s name may mean little to you, but his story is extraordinary by any measure (p. 92). He is the first person in history to complete what he jokingly calls “Earth’s explorational quadrumvirate,” namely journeying to both the North and South Poles, the ocean’s deepest point and outer space. He built and sold companies, made a fortune as one of the fathers of the gaming industry, lost it, then built it back up again, all to fulfill…

where's the beef?

In June, after a pandemic-prompted hiatus, chef Daniel Humm reopened his famed Eleven Madison Park. But the Michelin three-star restaurant was . . . different. Missing were Humm’s career-defining dishes, such as honey-lavender duck and suckling pig confit, that helped land him at number one on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2017. “It was clear that after everything we all experienced this past year, we couldn’t open the same restaurant,” Humm says. “We realized that, not only has the world changed, but we have changed as well.” The way the restaurant sourced and served animal protein was environmentally unsustainable, he says, so he removed meat and dairy from the kitchen. Now his menu is filled with dishes such as tonburi (dried seeds from the Japanese kochia tree) cooked with seaweed…

a season to remember

Accendo Cellars 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley $365 Two generations of the Araujo family teamed up on this brilliantly balanced Cabernet, which opens with savory, fresh-turned earth, brambly fruit and hints of tobacco, toasted spice and herbs. Plush plum and black raspberry flavors follow, with powerful tannins building through the mid-palate for depth and grip. Bella Oaks 2018 Proprietary Red Rutherford, Napa Valley $275 This inaugural vintage from arts advocate Suzanne Deal Booth and the historic Rutherford vineyard turns the region’s famous “dust” into a lovely cocoa. Complex floral, cassis, warm spice and crushed-rock aromas lead to intense blackberry flavors edged with fresh herbs—think wild fennel—and fine tannins. Lail Vineyards 2018 J. Daniel Cuvée Napa Valley $275 This 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from iconic Napa vintner Robin Lail is a striking contradiction of opulence and delicacy, with minerals…

telluride, off-piste

Telluride is a town with a reputation: a winter wonderland swathed in snow, scribbled with ski tracks and lit by fireplaces in cozy lodges. That image isn’t wrong—just incomplete. Telluride is also one of the best off-season destinations the West has to offer, with countless hiking and biking trails, top-notch kayaking and paddleboarding on the Alta Lakes, chef-driven destination restaurants and the most beautiful newly renovated resort in Colorado. Nestled at 10,540 feet, that resort is Madeline Hotel & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection, where guest experiences include off-roading, horseback riding through wildflower meadows to a saddlebag brunch, foraging expeditions with the chef and guided fly-fishing trips to private mountain streams. Or stay in to experience amenities such as the Alpine Swim Club, where you can sip a drink in the heated…

EASY BREEZY Lightweight renditions of casual staples, like this seersucker shirt-jacket and silky knit Henley, ensure you’ll stay looking smart in even the most punishing heat. Channel a Slim Aarons scene and accessorize with a Panama hat and your aperitivo of choice. SHORE THING Midcentury jet-setters perfected the recipe for off-duty elegance, which calls for a luxe knit shirt plus lightweight full-cut trousers. This take on the former is modeled on a piece worn by Jude Law’s effortlessly elegant Dickie Greenleaf character in The Talented Mr. Ripley. In other words: summer style gold. WHEELS UP After a year without travel, taking to the skies is an occasion, so dress accordingly. The combination of a softly constructed sport coat, spread-collared polo and classic canvas sneakers looks suave, even if your only destination is the office.…
