"Moko and Omar bring a cosmopolitan mix of Japanese and Middle Eastern influences to their tiny restaurant in the 11th, for weekday lunches and private dinners on reservation. While Omar creates carefully thought-out dishes in the kitchen, Moko is in charge of the oven and has quite a following for her inventive desserts. Don't leave without one of her cookies, as she says, they are most definitely good for the soul".
"Watching the sun set behind Stockholm's Old Town over lunch in one of the picture windows at Fotografiska's award-winning restaurant, is a Nordic winter experience not to be missed. As you would expect in this part of the world, everything is organic and locally sourced, with a clear focus on the quality of the vegetables around which each meal is based. Choose meat or fish from the open kitchen as a flavoursome side, washed down with carefully chosen wines, then take in the photography hub's current exhibitions".
Clarksdale, Mississippi, US
Ground Zero Blues Club
"Clarksdale is a small town in the Mississippi Delta, with a big history. It's the birthplace of the blues and the music is seared into the sun-baked sidewalks here. The jewel in the crown of the lively club scene is Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero Blues club. It might look like a dive bar from the outside, but don't be put off, most nights you can grab a cool drink, authentic soul food and kick back to hear bluesmen and women from all over the country play".
"An institution in this market town in the heart of the English countryside, The Vintner is a deserving local favourite for pre-dinner drinks at the bar and contemporary British feasts in the dining room. Grab a light supper before an evening performance at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, visit in winter for champagne by the fire, or watch the world go by over morning eggs Benedict in the window".
"This tiny, family-run wine estate on the island of Mazzorbo is also a boutique hotel, so you don't have too far to roll after dinner in the Michelin-starred restaurant. Refined seasonal cuisine with a focus on the quality of the raw ingredients, is paired with superb home-grown wines, in an idyllic setting with views across the walled vineyard, kitchen garden and beyond, out to the lagoon".
