If there's anything I learned from the movie The Trip, it's that comedians might be fun to watch but they can also be annoying travel companions. Oh, and that small hotels in the English countryside have some of that country's most interesting restaurants.
Luckily, travel-worthy hotel restaurants aren't just something on the other side of the pond.
Departures magazine has culled together a list of the 10 best farm-to-table hotel restaurants in the world. In addition to far-flung destinations including a hotel that sits in the middle of a Tanzanian coffee plantation, a New Zealand lodge and a three-Michelin-star hotel restaurant in California, the list features Texas treasure The Inn at Dos Brisas.
Sitting an hour west of Houston near tiny Washington, Tex., Dos Brisas' 313-acre property includes "a 10-acre [organic] garden, an orchard of persimmon, pear, apple and pomegranate trees and two greenhouses."
In addition to sourcing its own produce, the Dos Brisas dining room, led by new executive chef Zachary Ludwig, is the only Forbes Travel Guide five-star rated restaurant in Texas.
