HOT LIST


The Best New Restaurants in the World: 2022 Hot List
The most exciting new openings in travel, from the fresh-faced hotels we’d plan a trip around to boundary-pushing dining, museums, and more.
Each year, we index the best, brightest openings, but for the 26th edition of Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List, we’ve upped the ante: This time, editors at all seven worldwide editions had a hand in scouting and selecting the entries. At its heart, this is still a hotel list—a whopping 96 made the cut this year, which is a true testament to the industry’s resilience. But because (almost) no hotel is an island, we’ve widened the lens to include the best restaurants, culture, transportation, and cruises you need to know, and the destinations that are reinventing themselves. We mean it when we say this may be the hottest Hot List yet. Here, all the best new restaurants and bars to try out.

A Day in Berlin – What you MUST See: Join Alemanizando on a Special Tour Through the German Capital
What can you do if you have just one day in Berlin? Well, Elissa and Rodrigo from @Alemanizando have some tips for you! They take you to some famous places and to a few hidden spots in the German capital — like its smallest street. The Berlin-based couple from Brazil start at the Brandenburg Gate and then go for breakfast in one of Berlin’s major attractions: the Reichstag building. And of course they also visit its glass dome. Their next stops are the Unter den Linden boulevard, Humboldt University, Bebelplatz and Museum Island. Another hot tip is the Nikolaiviertel, Berlin’s oldest residential quarter. From there it’s just a short walk to Alexanderplatz, where most people would go up to the top of Germany’s tallest building, the TV Tower, to get a good view over the city. But Elissa and Rodrigo have a cheaper workaround for you to get a great alternative view from above! Not far away on Karl-Marx-Allee — the “first socialist street” on German soil — they feel a bit like they’re in Russia. No wonder, if you see the architecture that dates back to the East Germany era. Then it’s time for dinner in the popular Friedrichshain district before they end their tour at the East Side Gallery, which is both the longest surviving section of the Berlin Wall and also the longest open-air gallery in the world.
