Back in March I went to Tulum, Mexico to shoot Gitano Restaurant. It truly is a tropical paradise. I'd been to Tulum a few years back and its always a pleasure being in the Yucatan. Gitano, Spanish for gipsy is the perfect spot to hit up in Tulum. You can sip delicious mezcal cocktails and dance under the disco ball until the whee hours of the morning, the scent of smoky copal lingering in the air. Located across the street from Coqui Coqui and next door to The Hartwood. Get there.

Back in February when I was out west I shot Sylvan Brackett and his beautiful new restaurant Rintaro in San Francisco's Mission District. Sylvan is an extremely talented chef whos worked with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse for years prior. Using local seasonal ingredients Rintaro is based off of popular Japanese Izakayas. Sylvan has quite the collection of gorgeous ceramics some of which are made by one of his chefs Yuko Sato. I loved all of his tools, the wasabi grater is made from shark skin and the large knife used for cutting udon noodles. Every detail of the space is thoughtfully curated by Sylvan's travels and life in Japan. Check it out next time you are in SF! These photos came out in the April issue of Saveur Magazine.

Back in January I was out in LA shooting for the Ace which I shared a little bit ago. I always try to take a couple days for myself to explore, hang with friends and relax when I am traveling for work. I hadn't been to back to Palm Springs since I was a kid so my pal Jessie and I went for a couple days. Joshua Tree National Park is stunning and I highly recommend visiting there once in your life ;) Palm Springs is a lovely little resort town. I love the desert, it reminds me of home. I am heading back there in a week, cant wait.
