cafe-du-monde
Think back to all the restaurants and cafés that you've captured on your Instagram Story and scrolled past on your feed this year. If you or the people you follow live in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles, there's a good chance those snaps helped boost your favorite eateries to the top of Instagram's list of the most-'grammed restaurants, bars, bakeries, and cafes in the U.S. in 2017. On Wednesday, Instagram released its year in review, separating the most popular restaurants in the country into two categories: the most-Instagrammed restaurants and the most-Instagrammed bakeries and cafés. Funny enough, the most-photographed "restaurant" is actually a rooftop bar: the sprawling 230 Fifth in New York City, which is located 21 floors up and offers spectacular views of Manhattan including the...

Coffee is also free for the first couple hundred customers. Just be sure to look past the quotes from the show that appear on the cups—under some coffee sleeves there will be a message announcing that you’ve won free Netflix service for a period of time. Unsurprisingly, the lines have been very long. But can you really put a time limit when it comes to seeking out nostalgia? Lorelai and Rory would surely say no. However, if you don’t make...

Georgia, a land where Saperavi grapevines grow over roads; potbellied men with broad, black mustaches saunter through cobblestone streets; and fertile soil births an excess of fruits and vegetables. Lauded for hospitality, it’s one of the only places where a stranger might be whisked through the front door and stuffed full of adjaruli khachapuri, a molten mess of cheese, butter, and egg over moist flatbread, at a supra, a Georgian feast. At that meal, the classic Georgian toast befits the untamable terrain and the fierce warrior spirit of the population as it lauds “the land, the food, and the people.” Tbilisi, the country’s capital, hides a treasure around every corner. Apartments stack one on top of the other in mismatching styles....

You would drink a lot of caffeine, too, if you were J.J. Martin. The writer, editor, and founder of LaDoubleJ—a lifestyle and vintage e-commerce website—is a master at not slowing down. This is especially the case during Milan Fashion Week, when she’s darting between shows and attending lunches and late-night dinner parties in the city the California native has called home for 15 years. Martin is known for her discerning eye when it comes to both fashion and interior design, and she credits much of that to Milan’s wealth of both, even in the most unexpected places. When she’s not sitting front row at Gucci or designing her own brightly colored, printed dresses for LaDoubleJ Editions, there are five spots in...
