Cancel your Valentine’s Day luxury dinner reservation

Want a tip that’s sure to impress your beloved on Valentine’s Day? Cancel the dinner reservation at that ultra-luxurious, buzzed-about restaurant that you worked so hard to secure. It’s not going to deliver what you hope in terms of true luxury, and there are better and more meaningful things to do! So say all of the sophisticated restaurant insiders that we’ve spoken to about this pressing matter. If you have a reservation, we suggest you cancel it. And if you don’t have one, don’t stress over it: there are many more luxurious things to do on Valentine’s Day – you can save that lovely dinner at a magical restaurant for some other day.

what are the best food and drink events this January?

The Dandelion Chandelier Luxury Food and Drink Calendar highlights the food festivals, wine festivals, craft beer celebrations and restaurant-related events around the world that we’re looking forward to in January 2018. For the rest of the Luxury Calendar, click here. For other Food and Drink events, click here. Culinary explorers of the world, what are you hungry for this month? Sure, the holiday feasting is over. But that doesn’t mean that there are no events for foodies, oenophiles and craft beer connoisseurs in the month of January. Au contraire, the party just moves to warmer climes. The New Year brings new restaurants and bars to explore. And for those who embrace the cold, there’s something magical for you, too. Oh, and there’s an orange-throwing carnival in Italy that you might want to check out.

the luxury of holiday egg nog with a sophisticated edge

Dandelion Chandelier’s Luxury Dish is an occasional series featuring original recipes and their origin stories from our Luminaries, Fireflies, friends, families, and team of far-flung correspondents. They’re guaranteed to add sparkle to your next gathering. Our Food Editor recently arranged for us to pay a visit to a Christmas-themed pop-up bar in the East Village in New York City. It turned out to be one of the most fun adventures we’ve had all holiday season. Miracle on Ninth Street originated at Mace in 2014. Since then, the wildly popular Miracle Christmas bar concept has expanded – this holiday season, there will be over 50 Miracle bars in the US, Canada, Europe, Central America and Asia. You can find the full list of them here.
