Recently Fodor’s, a respected 80 year old leader in travel guides, released their Top 100 Restaurants in the World.
Some of the South’s Finest, and sometimes quirkiest, made the list of the 15 Best In The U.S. (full list here)
- Hotel Paisano – Marfa, Texas – Category: Timeless Treasure- “Film buffs will know The Hotel Paisano as home to James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor while they filmed the movie Giant (but if you want to stay in either of their rooms, be sure to book way ahead). Fans of classic, Old Hollywood glamor will know The Paisano for its rustic charm, rare movie memorabilia, cozy rooms, and reputation as the place to see and be seen in fashionable Marfa. “
- Ponchartrain Hotel -New Orleans, Louisiana – Category: Weird and Wonderful – “Funky green plush and leather furniture, floral wallpaper, and an abundance of plants nod to the building’s previous style, whereas kitschy pop art, lively dining outlets, and modern amenities give it a proper revamping”
- Thompson -Nashville, Tn. – Category: Modern Marvel – “The decor is hip, but nothing over the top; perhaps the best feature is the rooftop bar, with sweeping views of downtown and local craft beers on tap. “
