Destination Restaurants: 4 Meals Worth the Trip

Destination Restaurants 4 meals worth the trip

Destination Restaurants 4 meals worth the trip

It’s easy to justify going across town for a great meal, but these destination restaurants may convince you to travel across the country.

Food is an integral part of travel. What better way to experience the culture of a place than one bite at a time? So often, we seek out the quintessential meals everywhere we visit. But sometimes the meal itself is worth the journey. These four destination restaurants can be vacations all on their own.

Alinea, Chicago, IL

Chef Grant Achatz and restaurateur Nick Kokonas founded Alinea in 2006. Since then, Alinea has become one of the top destination restaurants in the world and has collected three Michelin stars. The restaurant and cuisine are always pushing the limits of what food and dining can be. As they say, Alinea is not a restaurant, at least, not in the conventional sense. Their signature dessert, an edible helium balloon, definitely reflects that approach. Every dish is a feast for the eyes and the stomach. Then they add a dose of theater and display to dining as well. Choose the small Kitchen Table for an intimate experience, the 10-12 course Salon Menu, or go big with 16-18 courses plus top-notch showmanship in the Gallery Menu. Alinea is constantly reinventing itself, which included a full renovation in early 2018. No matter what, Alinea is sure to deliver a once in a lifetime dining experience.

The French Laundry, Yountville, CA

Thomas Keller’s Napa restaurant The French Laundry is the definition of a destination restaurant. The New York Times’  Ruth Reichl calls this restaurant “the most exciting place to eat in the United States.” Since 1994 they’ve served the highest quality ingredients prepared in the French tradition to the tune of three Michelin stars. Choose from a 9-course chef’s tasting menu or a vegetable tasting menu. The menu changes daily but is always based on fresh ingredients, many of which come from the gardens around the restaurant and others are sourced from the best producers in the area. Each day, the team of chefs takes these ingredients and creates works of art anew. No meal is ever the same. Of course, you can always count on the delectably French gougeres, a delicious pastry wrapped around a cheesy center.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Pocantico Hills, NY

Dan Barber’s idyllic field-to-table restaurant is located on a working farm alongside the Stone Barns educational center in the Hudson Valley. Blue Hill at Stone Barns showcases fresh local ingredients from the surrounding area. You’ll see the finest local meats and produce. Instead of a menu, guests at Blue Hill enjoy “a multi-taste feast featuring the best offerings from the field and market.” Selections have included Sea Urchin and Kabocha as well as Face Bacon. Their website lists what’s being harvested rather than what you’ll see on the table on any given day. The equally impressive wine list promises Unconventional Pairings to make your meal truly superb. However, Stone Barns serves a mission of education working to “create a consciousness about the effect of everyday food choices.”

229 Parks Restaurant and Tavern, Denali, AK

Most of us probably don’t think of a National Park as a destination restaurant location, but 229 Parks Restaurant and Tavern in Denali National Park fits the bill. 229 Parks is located inside of Denali National Park, home of North America’s tallest peak. The 6 million-acre park is larger than the state of New Hampshire and inside you’ll find some truly amazing cuisine. Owner and head chef and James Beard Award nominee Laura Cole brings her passion for Alaskan food to the table. The constantly changing menu reflects the local food culture and availability. Chances are you won’t see dishes such as Reindeer Ragu and Alaskan Octopus in the lower 48. Combine the unique ingredients with the majestic scenery of the park for an experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
