Houstonia Magazine | "Is One of the World’s Greatest Restaurants Just an Hour’s Drive Away?"

IT’S NO SURPRISE that Eric Ripert’s Le Bernardin in Manhattan made the cut, or Tosca either, with its dining room on the 102nd floor of the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong. But that Forbes’s 2018 list of the world’s greatest restaurants should include a place within spitting distance of Highway 290, near a cluster of one-horse towns that make Brenham seem like a bustling metropolis—well, we were skeptical.

Delta Style Magazine | "Weekend Getaway: The Inn at Dos Brisas"

After spending a blissful summer in the Caribbean, we return to the south with a desired taste of ranch life. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that The Inn at Dos Brisas was less than five hours way where I would be able to find luxurious accommodations (one of the few places where your suite can come with its own private plunge pool), ranch life with horses and guns and a five-star culinary experience.

Boston Sunday Globe | "Mother Nature is the Guest of Honor"

Ever get that sinking feeling of being a part of the problem: that is, part of a growing population that’s traveling more and more frequently? It’s a problem because, according to a recent UN World Tourism Organization study, vacationing already accounts for 5 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions. While the actual getting-there is the biggest offender, the UN agency responsible for the promotion of sustainable international tourism found that where you lay your head accounts for approximately 20 percent. To increase efforts to counter environmental harm, the UNWTO designated 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism.

Travel + Leisure | "Most Romantic Fall Getaways"

At the Inn at Dos Brisas, Spanish-style haciendas with fireplaces have French doors that lead to your own private screened porch and outdoor pool. (There’s also an indoor whirlpool—big enough for two—with soothing bath salts.) Horses roam the grounds of this tranquil property in the eastern foothills of Texas Hill Country. You can saddle up for a ride past bluebonnet fields, or stick around the inn for a cooking class or a private wine class. One couple complimented the chef on a steak rub and was surprised with a sampling to take home at checkout. In October, enjoy complimentary tastings along the nearby Texas Wine Month Trail.

Dallas Morning News | "The Inn at Dos Brisas is a Texas Country Retreat fit for a Sophisticated Cowboy"

Plump and luscious are not words you usually think of when staring at a single, naked egg yolk. But this jiggly, saffron Buddha’s belly lounging atop my carbonara mesmerized me. I poked it, watching it trickle, before giving it a rousing stir through my “little ears” of handmade orecchiette.
