If you—like us—travel for the eats, you’re gonna want to start planning some culinary-fueled trips for this year. Whether you favor nostalgic gastropubs or have your heart set on the world’s highest ranked tables, there’s a place on this list for you on our #LikeAJetsetter list. From Los Angeles to London, we rounded up the hottest restaurants to book in 2019.
This modern Israeli restaurant by Lettuce Entertain You (Chicago’s largest restaurant group) opened in the emerging Fulton Market district last summer and as soon as the weather warms up again, you can bet that its open-air terrace will be packed. Chef CJ Jacobson, who runs Ema (which translates to mother in Hebrew) turns out an extensive selection of mezze (there are six hummus variations alone) meant for sharing at Aba (which means father). You really can’t go wrong, but whatever you do, be sure to leave room for dessert. The kulfi is an addictive combination of sweet coriander caramel and marcona almonds.
