The Best New Restaurant + Bar Openings Around The Globe This March


What's the happs in the food scene right now, you ask? I'll tell you what: a whole lot! I just love writing my monthly Dining Agenda column for Departures, as it makes me keep a bird's eye view on the global food scene. (The caveat, of course, is that it makes my wanderlust gets even wilder!)

My March column has all sorts of fun food news from some of my favorite fine dining chefs: good ol' Heston Blumenthal has adopted a strict photo policy at his restaurants, including Dinner at London’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel and his Michelin three-star Fat Duck pop-up in Australia; Inaki Aizpitarte, one of France’s most lauded chefs, is slated to open Le Chabanais in London this spring; and fellow Top Chef Masters alum and James Beard Award–nominated chef Mark Peel will open Bombo Foods in Grand Central Market, the hub of alt eating in L.A. (Peel won one of the Knife Fight episodes I judged, too.)

Check out all the food news that's fit to print in my Dining Agenda for Departures Magazine, right this way.
