A Scandalous Evening at The Watergate Hotel

One of the most infamous hotels in the world has been restored to its former glory after a $200 million nine year long renovation. Washington D.C’s Watergate Hotel is known for so many things—as an avant-garde architectural structure, a luxury hotel turned iconic landmark, and perhaps most notably as the scene of the Watergate break in, the major political scandal in the ‘70s that resulted in our country’s first Presidential resignation, on the heels of a probable impeachment. Book the appropriately named Scandal Suite for a trip that will feel like a visit back in time. This was originally Room 214, the infamous room used as a lookout point for Howard Hunt and G Gordon Liddy as a group of burglars, on behalf of rogue elements in the GOP party, broke into the headquarters of the Democratic Party in order to photograph documents and plant listening devices...

From Ad Exec to San Francisco’s Private Executive Chef, an Interview with Andrea Gray Lawson

Entrepreneur turned chef Andrea Gray Lawson is a force to be reckoned with. A serial entrepreneur at heart, Chef Andrea was part of the now defunct Kitchit, an on demand private chef startup. When that failed, she saw her fellow colleagues, all extremely talented chefs and suddenly without the steady stream of clients that Kitchit had provided, and had a vision for something different. A co-op of sorts, with shared costs, shared values, and shared talents. Thus Private Chefs of the SF Bay was born, an extremely high end personal chef brand that brings fine dining to you, whether it be for an executive luncheon or for a special treat in your home or a way to take your California vacation to the next level...

A Fine Dining Adventure in the Heart of San Francisco

It isn’t often that we come across a hotel restaurant that captures our attention, much less steals our heart. The Taj Campton hotel’s Campton Place, a one-Michelin-star restaurant, is one of those rare diamonds in the rough. This innovative and overall daring gastronomic adventure is reason enough to hop on a plane for a weekend getaway in San Francisco—the luxurious hotel suites to collapse on once you’ve entered your Michelin food coma are just an added bonus...

An Interview With Chef Patrick O’Connell

Chef Patrick O’Connell started cooking 40 years ago in an old farmhouse with just a yard sale electric frying pan. Today he is the self-taught acclaimed chef and, of course, the proud bearer of two Michelin stars at The Inn at Little Washington in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The confirmation of his two Michelin star renewal was announced by the French Embassy yesterday. We interrupted Chef mid-photoshoot (he was having afternoon tea with a dog) for a heart to heart on how he turned a defunct gas station into a luxurious Relais & Châteaux property and what those two illustrious Michelin stars mean to him....
