Fodor's Choice Winter 2006 List
Tuesday November 1, 6:00 am ET
Fodor's list answers the question -- What makes a truly unique winter travel experience?


NEW YORK, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- When asked to name the world's best hotels, restaurants and experiences, travelers almost reflexively name the world's most expensive lodgings, restaurants owned and operated by famous chefs, and traditionally popular tourist destinations. One can hardly begrudge the status and grandeur of the world's Four Seasons, the 21 Club or the Eiffel Tower -- But does being luxurious and popular necessarily make an experience the best? Or the best choice for you?
The Fodor's Choice winter 2006 list is the annual round up of the Fodor's editors' and writers' top picks for hotels, restaurants and sites/experiences that receive the Fodor's Choice designation in our Gold Guides. This designation is reserved for hotels, restaurants, sights and experiences so wonderful and so special that words don't do them justice -- you just have to experience them to know. The editors culled through the thousands of picks to come up with this list of their top choices for winter travel. The selections are unique, unusual, and not-to-be-missed; and you're sure to have a one-of-a-kind experience.

Unlike the many "best-of" lists top-heavy with the ostentatious, the expensive and the familiar, this winter's Fodor's Choice list offers travelers a variety of options in a variety of price ranges. If dining on a cliff at sunset overlooking the waves of the Pacific, kayaking in a bio-luminescent lake in the moonlight or staying in a private bungalow nestled between a beautiful beach and a tropical jungle sounds appealing, then this list is for you.

Simply stunned here. After calling my mom & dad, I have to thank my fantastic staff and of course my amazingly talented wife, our chef Jennifer.
[She's wandering around the house muttering, "I'm on a webpage with Thomas Keller...I'm on a webpage with Thomas Keller...."]
Thanks so much to everyone who has made this restaurant what it is, and we look forward to seeing all of you soon!


Casa Picasso celebrated three yearsthis May, thanks to all of you!
Chris and Jen

Congratulations Chris and Jennifer! An outstanding accomplishment!

...but I'm afraid I now have to become an insufferable snob since I've actually eaten in a place that's Fordor's Choice... :p


Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.
