Ambrose Small

In Restaurant Notes: Hurricane Sandy practically destroyed the New York City Seaport but the area is being revived and it now houses galleries, boutiques and, as of the beginning of June, “Ambrose Beer & Lobster” a restaurant that offers three of my favorites: lobster rolls, shoe-string fries, and a feta and watermelon salad as well as numerous artisanal beers on tap from pale blond lagers to dark ales and stouts.

Now, riverboats are cruising the lower Danube. By Carol Stigger   Read More...

Shangri-La Guangzhou Entrance Hall Small

Also in Hotels & Resorts: Strolling through acres of gardens and lounging beside the meandering outdoor swimming pool just steps from the lush riverbank, it is hard to believe you are in the midst of one of China's most chaotic cities and walking distance from one of the biggest convention centers in the world.  But that is the case for fortunate guests at the Shangri-La in China's third largest city, Guangzhou. By Sharon King Hoge        Read More...
