On the other side of the Atlantic, in Antibes, France, there is a now-legendary eatery called MAMO Le Michelangelo. Opened in 1992, the upscale establishment has since become a jewel of the French Riviera, and a favored hotspot for the many celebrities who flock to the area for the Cannes Film Festival. After 23 years of European success, the restaurant set its sights on New York. This May, a South of France inspired MAMO outpost opened doors in SoHo, offering the same authentic Italian cuisine and exceptional service of its counterpart.

Cooking in the great outdoors doesn't have to be a hassle. The Camp Champ Mobile Kitchen makes it easy. The body of this cube-shaped solution is made by hand in Austria from boatbuilding plywood, with sapele veneers, okoume plywood inlays, stainless steel clam kidneys to connect the doors and work surface, and galvanized steel handles and corners. Inside the robust box, you'll find high-quality equipment — enough to serve up to six people — as well as an integrated knife block, spice rack, and trash bag holder. It comes with a rain cover, and when you're done cooking, a cushion on top lets you use it as a seat.

Mexico City’s Cuauhtémoc neighbourhood plays host to Hotel Carlota designed by Javier Sánchez Architecture and Cadena Asociados. With just 36 rooms, the property concentrates on outdoors space, the impressive poolside areas joined by various shaded and unshaded corners as well as the outdoor eating and bar areas. A mix of raw concrete and colorful artwork from local makers, the hotel aims to “capture the zeitgeist of the rising neighbourhood,” playing to a contemporary Mexican aesthetic that fuses traditional and industrial. Envisioned as both a hotel and cultural complex, Carlota offers guests and visitors a library, gallery and shopping centre, part of a wider plan to create an entertainment hub for the community. Book a room at the website.

If you've ever wondered what it would have been like to live in a small village in the 1800s, head to Dunton Hot Springs. Just over the ridge from Telluride, Dunton is a reclaimed ghost town that's been transformed into a serene upscale getaway. The accommodations include 13 restored log cabins built in a circle around a saloon — itself restored, serving up fantastic food — a dance hall, and a bath house. Just down the river are eight luxurious canvas tents, and there's also an open-air chapel, library, and, of course, natural hot springs on site.
