Cocktails in Cuba
When you visit Havana visit the Rum museum. After your tour you'll see original recipes for cocktails, like this one for mojitos. Cuba is the birthplace of the mojito, the most famous Cuban cocktail and this recipe is very easy to follow.

Now your office can be in a restaurant
A startup in NY called Spacious is offering space in restaurants that are not used during the day. The space includes rooms you can book for meetings as well as free coffee, water, and snacks for you and your guests, wifi and work friendly music. This idea is enabling restaurant owners to make use of space not used during the day as well as people to work close to home in a comfortable environment with others who are like-minded. The space shown is at DBGB Kitchen and Bar. www.Spacious.com

In April this year a team of Dutch 3D printed food innovators became the first in the world to open up a pop-up restaurant called Food Ink serving 3D printed food. To follow up on that success, Food Ink has been planning a world tour to the world?s biggest culinary hotspots, and the next date has just been announced. They'll set up outside The Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London from 25 to 27 July, where a nine-course 3D printed dinner will be served. www.foodink.io

A restaurant that doesn't accept tips
We had a lovely Christmas dinner at Maialino Restaurant in Gramercy Park New York and were very pleased with their no tipping policy. Tips in NY can be expected at 20% plus and it was great that they're not encouraged, including on special days like Christmas. Staff like the policy as well as their income is more certain.
