When you need an East Coast getaway—fast—Bermuda is a fantastic option. It’s closer than the Caribbean, yet offers up the key ingredients of an island getaway: luxurious resorts, locavore restaurants, those famously pink sand beaches, and the most crystal clear turquoise waters I’ve ever seen.
I recently set off on my first adventure to Bermuda and, as you can tell, it won me over—with its beauty, multicultural charm, and convenience. My flight from NYC took less than 2 hours, and I was lying on a powder-soft sand beach (Rum Swizzle in hand) by noon on my arrival day.
Take a cue from my trip for an easy, breezy Bermuda weekend of your own. Read the full, original article on AFAR’s The Wayfarer here.
When it comes to Italian food in New York, pizza dominates the conversation. And while we are a pizza town at heart, the pasta here has also long been indisputably the best outside of Italy—and decades of Italian New Yorkers crafting homemade red sauce classics, combined with chefs’ never-ending need for innovation, leaves us with the most delicious and diverse pasta options we’ve ever seen.
My latest Thrillist article details the the best pasta dishes in New York City—from a bucket list-worthy lasagna better than your mom’s to a chicken liver signature from one of the city’s star chefs. Check out the full article here. Then mangia to your heart’s content.
It’s no secret that famous celebrity body parts are sometimes insured for millions of dollars—from superstar backsides to supermodel legs. But when a talented tongue gets a whopping $1.5 million insurance policy, it would be understandable for one to think Gene Simmons before Sebastian Michaelis.
My latest article for Eater introduces Michaelis—a tea sommelier and one of 10 master blenders for widely accessible British tea brand Tetley, the powerhouse tea manufacturer headquartered in London and the second largest teabag brand worldwide—and details his unique job and prized palate. Read all about it here.
