Pass on the Steak, Head to Peter Luger For Their Amazing Burger

IMG_0379

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.

Tragedy at the Famous VooDoo Doughnut

VooDoo Doughnut

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.

During our trip to Portland, Oregon in late 2016, besides a couple of famous pizzerias, I had to make a stop at VooDoo Doughnut. Continue reading Tragedy at the Famous VooDoo Doughnut

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! Continue reading Jacques Torres Opening Chocolate Museum in NYC

The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited

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. Continue reading The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited

Last summer NYC got an interesting Magnum Bar Ice Cream pop-up. (Check out my review about the Magnum pop-up here.)

In June 2016 I wrote about a Kellogg’s Cereal Restaurant set to open in the city. The restaurant opened in July and has seemed to do well. For a limited time, Pop Tarts will be joining in on the fun. Continue reading Pop Tarts Cafe Pop-Up Opening in NYC

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. Continue reading Most Expensive Cup of Coffee in US Now Sold in NYC
