The palatial retreat that Winston Churchill declared “the most lovely spot in the whole world” has reopened after a sweeping three-year restoration. Superstar designer Jacques Garcia’s interior fuses Jazz Age grandeur with exotic Moroccan flourishes. Sprawling gardens, a new 27,000-square-foot spa and updated restaurants headed by a pair of Michelin-starred chefs complete the royal treatment. Doubles from $750 (Avenue Bab Jdid, 800/223-6800; ). —Jessica Mischner

This sprawling $354 million complex caps Dallas’s 68-acre arts district. It includes an opera house and an outdoor performance square, both by Norman Foster. But the real standout is the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre (above), a Rem Koolhas and Joshua Prince-Ramus collaboration. (2403 Flora St.; 214/880-0202; ). —Courtney Woods

This modern diner’s all-day menu makes it the place to be, morning, noon or (late) night. Try the Froot Loops–topped pancakes ($7) or a trio of hot dogs (Chicago, New York and Portland styles, $11). The LEED-certified eatery converts kitchen grease into biodiesel and serves tasty boxed wines (300 SW 6th Ave.; 503/546-2666; ). —LJE
