Una Pizza Napoletana Opening 2nd Location In New Jersey

Una Pizza NapoletanaA little over a year ago, I finally got to try Una Pizza Napoletana and it was amazing!

The pizzeria started out in New Jersey, then moved to NYC before leaving for San Francisco. Then in May 2018, Una Pizza Napoletana reopened on New York’s Lower East Side.

Since my initial visit, Kim and I dined their again in late 2018. The pizzas are excellent but definitely on the pricier end of the spectrum. Continue reading Una Pizza Napoletana Opening 2nd Location In New Jersey

Food Review: St. Louis-Style Pizza at Imo’s Pizza

Imo's PizzaI first heard about St Louis-style Pizza when the restaurant Speedy Romeo opened in Brooklyn.

What makes St Louis-style pizza different is that it’s made with Provel,  a processed cheese consisting of provolone, Swiss and white cheddar. The pies are also cut differently. (More on that later.)

On the long trip home from our trip to Argentina and Uruguay, we had a long layover in St Louis. I planned a few things to do with the time including trying St Louis-style pizza where it’s from! (This was planned prior to our flight being cancelled.) Continue reading Food Review: St. Louis-Style Pizza at Imo’s Pizza

Does The DoubleTree Cookie Have Competition From Fairfield Inn?

We booked a one night stay at the Fairfield Inn in Philadelphia Downtown/ Center City.

Philly was a good choice for us due to the proximity to home (we drove), the great food and lots of kid friendly options. Continue reading Does The DoubleTree Cookie Have Competition From Fairfield Inn?

What Did We Try At McDonald’s Andorra

McDonalds AndorraDuring a trip to Barcelona, Spain the Michael W Travels also visited the small landlocked country of Andorra. (Andorra is located between Spain and France in the Pyrenees Mountains.)

Find out what we did with 25 Hours In Andorra.

Soon after crossing the border, we were all hungry and a McDonald’s location just so happened to be on the road we were on.

Much Better 2nd Visit At Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

Priority Pass LoungeA couple of months back, I wrote about a disappointing Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport.

BVG isn’t a typical Priority Pass Lounge, it’s a restaurant where members get a $28 credit. If you bring a guest, multiply it times 2 and you have $56 to spend during your visit.

While we weren’t happy with our selections, Kim and I figured another visit would be in order in the near future. Continue reading Much Better 2nd Visit At Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

Trying The Top Rated Burger In America At Au Cheval NYC

Au ChevalA couple of weeks back, the #1 rated burger in America came to NYC when Au Cheval opened in Tribeca.

I’ve long wanted to take another trip to Chicago and try Au Cheval’s cheeseburger. While I still want to go to Chicago again, trying this popular burger became much easier for me.

Last weekend the Michael W Travels family headed to Tribeca with the hopes of getting into Au Cheval without much of a wait for brunch. Continue reading Trying The Top Rated Burger In America At Au Cheval NYC
