• Image about Newport Beach
At The Island Hotel in Newport Beach, California, executive chef Bill Bracken keeps guests at the luxury resort happy and well fed with his “American-style cuisine with a twist.” Now the resort’s “Air Fare” program means you can take a delicious meal (like macaroni and cheese with crushed truffles and a Parmesan tuile or The Island’s signature chopped salad) with you when you head to the airport or the beach. If, that is, you really must leave their posh digs. islandhotel.com
