Food and Drink

Food and drink are often the highlight of—if not the reason for—many getaways. Travelers plan journeys around wine regions (say, Bordeaux), exclusive restaurants (like the famed—but now closed—El Bulli), or local specialties (New Orleans's creole cooking, or Italian white truffles). Whether you want to sample the most satisfying street food (New York City's chicken and rice, or Manila's halo-halo) or try the most exquisite examples of fine dining (a molecular gastronomy-inspired foam confection, or locally sourced foie gras), Travel + Leisure's editors and writers are on the hunt for the very best food and drink around the world.
