I’d place burgers at this point as my second favorite food, just behind pizza.
Over the years, I’ve tried burgers at some of the top places in New York City. I’ve also sought out burgers from some of the oldest and most classic bars and restaurants in the area.
One of my favorite burgers in the country is served at Peter Luger Steakhouse open since 1887. Another excellent burger can be had at Keen’s Steakhouse which opened in 1885. While I love Old Town Bar (open since 1892), we weren’t big fans of their cheeseburger. Continue reading Food Review: The Burger & Wings From Teddy’s Bar & Grill- Brooklyn, NY
We started using Airbnb during our trips back in August 2012.
After having a hard time finding a solid, affordable place in Singapore, we turned to Airbnb and it was an awesome experience. Since then, we’ve stayed in Airbnbs many times, some stays have been great, others not so much.
Over the years, I’ve come across various interesting and bizarre Airbnbs like a 6 ton potato, a vintage custom van, igloos, tents and more. Continue reading This Pizza Themed Airbnb Comes With… A Slice Of Pizza!
I’m always on the lookout for great new pizza close to home and while traveling.
We’re pretty lucky with the fact that Brooklyn pizza is some of the best you’ll come across just about anywhere. There’s also plenty of great shops in Manhattan and the other boroughs.
We also like going on trips to Connecticut, Philadelphia and (to a lesser extent) New Jersey in search of great pizza. Continue reading Brooklyn Pizza Scene Gets Even Better, Head To F & F Pizzeria Now!
Di Fara Pizza, located in the Midwood area of Brooklyn, NY is considered to be one of the best pizzerias in the country.
The pizzeria is in a bizarre location considering that it’s located is a predominately Jewish area with just about all kosher shops. Regardless, people frequently make the trek to Avenue J to try a slice.
Years back, it made headlines for charging $5 per slice which is definitely pricey for pizza but not overly ridiculous these days. Continue reading Is NYC’s Di Fara Pizza Destination Worthy?
Billy Durney’s Hometown Bar-B-Que serves the best ‘cue in New York City. His long anticipated second restaurant finally opened but in a different format than was originally expected.
The space was originally supposed to be a restaurant serving fried chicken. However it changed formats and became Red Hook Tavern, a new version of a classic, old school tavern. Continue reading The Best New Burger In NYC Is Served At… Red Hook Tavern
Last week I wrote about Una Pizza Napoletana expanding with a second location and now a famed Brooklyn pizzeria will be following suit.
In the near future, you’ll be able to get L&B Spumoni Gardens saucy squares at a new location in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
The 80 year-old pizzeria, famed for their squares and spumoni will be expanding for the first time. Continue reading Famed Brooklyn Pizzeria L&B Spumoni Gardens Opening 2nd Location
Paulie Gee’s opened in Greenpoint, Brooklyn back in 2010. Long lines soon followed, with many wanting to try some of his great Brooklyn pizza.
Kim and I visited soon after Paulie Gee’s opened. We really enjoyed the pizza, only available by the pie. Since then, we’ve visited quite a few times, although we haven’t been there in around two years. (If you don’t arrive on weekends before opening, you’re bound to get stuck waiting to get inside.) Continue reading Paulie Gee’s Slice Shop- A Great New Addition To The Brooklyn Pizza Scene

The Michael W Travels really loves pizza and enjoys trying out different pizzerias close to home and far away.
When I read about a new place which was serving a new style of pizza in Brooklyn, I needed to give Aita Pizzeria in Clinton Hill a try. We visited a few days after the shop opened (in September) and I have to say that we were really impressed. Continue reading A Visit To The New Aita Pizzeria in Brooklyn, NY
One of my favorite foods is the hamburger. This should come as no surprise considering how many burger reviews I’ve written here at Michael W Travels.
What I love about burgers is that they can come in so many different varieties. The bun, meat, cheese and other topping all can vary, making for lots of unique kinds of burgers!
You wouldn’t expect to find an amazing burger at a Jewish- style deli, but you can get a really great burger at Mile End Deli in Brooklyn, NY. Continue reading You NEED To Try The Big Macher Burger at Mile End Deli
