Rome, Italy

2 / 9


The concept of "farm to table" in Rome is a given, not a trend. The homemade pasta and bubbling-hot pizza are to die for, but even seemingly simple dishes, like bruschetta, served with fresh tomatoes, homemade bread and fragrant basil, will give you a whole new appreciation of Italian food. And save room for gelato, everywhere you go.

Creole, European, African and Indian—it's a delectable combination here in St. Lucia. Expect lots of fresh seafood and unique spice combinations across the island, and, for a splurge, make a reservation at Boucan by Hotel Chocolat, where the own estate-grown cacao is incorporated into every dish.

"Melting pot" is an understatement for the gastro scene in Aruba, one of our favorite honeymoon spots. Here, more than 90 nationalities influence the restaurants, including flavors from Spain, the nation that first discovered the island, and the Dutch, which later acquired it. Of course, don't forget to try local favorites, such as gouda-glazed keshi yena, a spice-filled meat and cheese dish you won't find back home.

New Orleans, Louisiana

Love is in the air in New Orleans—and so is live jazz, sultry swamp music and a food scene unlike any other. Order beignets at Café du Monde, savor brunch at Commander's Palace, search out the city's best muffaletta and eat your fill of gumbo as you get the lay of the land in The Big Easy.

Paris, France

Don't forget Paris. Here, food reaches new heights, thanks to inventive chefs obsessively committed to the culinary craft. For a meal that reaches "life-changing" proportions, book a reservation at one of Joël Robuchon's restaurants. But keep in mind, you don't have to spend a paycheck to have an amazing meal. Hit the neighborhood bakery for baguettes and macarons, a local creamery for cheese and a wine shop for a bottle of red, and you've got a picnic to remember.
