OK, so if you’re making a special trip to Peter Luger, I know you’ll most likely want to try their famous steak (and I don’t blame you) but hear me out on this one…
Peter Luger is considered by many to be the best steakhouse in New York City. If you want to get in, odds are pretty high that you’ll need a reservation which needs to be made a month in advance.
I’ve had steak at Peter Luger and it is really good but it’s also really pricey. If you ask me, a better option for visiting this historic restaurant is to head over during the day to give their awesome burger (available until 3:45pm) a try.

Most of you would probably agree that food and travel go hand in hand .
When visiting a new destination, I try to do some research to find popular places to try out. Most of the time this means the best burgers and pizza in a city.
in late 2016, besides a couple of famous pizzerias, I had to make a stop at VooDoo Doughnut. trip to Portland, Oregon Continue reading Tragedy at the Famous VooDoo Doughnut
During our trip to Ireland, the Michael W Travels family dined in pubs quite frequently.
Besides pub dining, Lucas and I were excited to check out McDonald’s Ireland. Lucas was interested in getting a toy and I was looking forward to seeing what local menu items might be available.

I’m always on the lookout for fun things to do close to home. Even when we’re not traveling, it isn’t hard to find ways to keep busy exploring around New York City.
While I’m not a big fan of big, boring museums, I do love museums that focus on odd things as well as food.
I was pretty excited to come across news that Mr. Chocolate himself, Jacques Torres would soon be opening a chocolate museum in the city!

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from an awesome little trip to Ireland.
While Dublin is usually a quick flight from NYC, we flew on connecting flights each way. A small inconvenience is worth it to save on the cost of a flight, if you ask me…
During our travels we got to visit a Priority Pass lounge in three airports. Two of the lounges were solid offering food, snacks, drinks and a place to relax.
The other Priority Pass lounge was quite different and possibly the most interesting one that I’ve ever visited.

Shake Shack sells my favorite fast-casual burger out there. They also have other tasty menu items like chicken sandwiches, cheese fries, shakes and more.
What’s better than Shake Shack one might ask? In my opinion, the only thing that beats Shake Sack is… FREE Shake Shack!

Some people might love the wings and other food served at Hooters. However, maybe they don’t want to see women forced to wear skimpy outfits as they do their job.
To help solve this problem, the chain is opening a new fast-casual concept.

Do you start off your day with a cup of coffee?
I never got into coffee and still don’t really understand why there needs to be a Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts on just about every street corner in NYC. (Maybe it’s the public bathrooms which we can use!)
There are many other coffee shops around the city but one of them has a new distinction.
