The core the site’s power is its team of editors, a well-traveled and well-educated group who are not only experts in their fields but discriminating in their tastes.

Our Methods

What We Choose

Food and entertainment – the lifeblood of travel – most readily and immediately distinguish a city. Our recommendations tailor these places and activities to your needs. We provide exquisite, high-end choices alongside budget-friendly establishments. We also seek out places that showcase a city’s special flair, rather than including run-of-the-mill franchises.

How We Decide

We approach any city with one goal in mind – to capture its individual character. At the forefront of this process is our team of editors, a well-traveled and well-educated group who are not only experts in their fields but discriminating in their tastes. They conduct extensive, independent research using immediate and secondary sources. Along with this research, they incorporate first-hand experience from mystery travelers, relevant data from city-specific publications, and the opinions of local contacts. From there, evaluations begin, and with well-honed skills and practiced discernment, these editors make their choices. The end result is a compilation of the best.
