One of our favorite parts of traveling is sampling the area’s cuisine, visiting local restaurants, and indulging in the luxury of someone else doing the cooking and cleaning. And Inspirato members are in luck: with a portfolio of world-class hotels, they often don’t even need to leave the property to enjoy a five-star meal.
We’ve rounded up our favorite restaurants within these five hotels, all worth a stay—if even just for the food alone.
Farmhouse Inn — Sonoma County, California
With meals as world-class as the wine, the Farmhouse Inn’s signature Michelin-starred restaurant fits right in among the hotel’s chic cottages, appearing as if straight out of a storybook. Sample sumptuous risotto and sirloin dishes with perfectly paired varietals. And handcrafted, alcohol-free juice pairings add to the fun, especially if you feel you’ve overindulged at the vineyards.
The Lodge at Kukui’ula — Kauai, Hawaii
On Kauai, the Lodge at Kukui’ula’s upscale Umeke Kitchen + Bar, helmed by Executive Chef Ben Takahashi, brings the oft-used phrase “farm-to-table” to life. The Lodge’s on-site Farm provides the restaurant’s produce, and you can even harvest your own salad. The Farm also features a fishing lake, one of the only places in the U.S. to snag a prized peacock bass—have Umeke’s kitchen prep your catch for dinner.
Baglioni Relais Santa Croce — Florence, Italy
In the heart of Florence and tucked within the historic and elegant Baglioni Relais Santa Croce is three Michelin-starred Ristorante Enoteca Pinchiorri. Its head chef, Annie Feolde, was the first female chef to earn three Michelin stars in Italy. She brings an inventive hand to her traditionally Italian dishes, like fusilli al ferretto and squid in white wine. And you needn’t even worry about making a reservation yourself—your concierge at the Baglioni can do it for you.
Rosewood Baha Mar — Nassau, Bahamas
Rosewood Baha Mar pairs the warmth of Bahamian hospitality with a touch of glamor, and its Café Boulud restaurant exemplifies both concepts. Bringing French cuisine to the Bahamas, Chef Daniel Boulud operates under four ideals: La Tradition, La Saison, La Mer and Le Voyage. Wish fresh seafood and in-season Caribbean ingredients, he crafts gourmet meals like lamb loin or citrus-cured Hamachi with his signature French flair.
Sonnenalp — Vail, Colorado
Nestled within charming Vail Village is the Sonnenalp hotel and its signature Swiss Chalet, offering authentic Bavarian cuisine in the Rockies, with favorites like Schnitzel and a variety of fondues. The chalet’s award-winning wine list also offers more than 1,000 varietals, and was created with Gemütlichkeit in mind—the German concept of warmth, friendliness, and good cheer.
