On a recent visit to Manhattan, we decided to head over to The Little Owl to see what all of the fuss was about. Continue reading Disappointing Bacon Cheeseburger From The Little Owl- Once Considered Best In World

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.

Food Review: The Cheeseburger (& Wings) at Old Town Bar in NYC

Old TownBefore having kids, Kim and I used to go to the historic Old Town Bar (which has been around since 1892) for a drink from time to time. However, we didn’t realize that they served food back then. And when we did find out, we didn’t know that it was supposed to be really good.

A bit later on, I started reading that Old Town Bar served a really good burger. Considering how much I love burgers, I’ve wanted to give it a try for years but the timing was never right. Continue reading Food Review: The Cheeseburger (& Wings) at Old Town Bar in NYC

Not the burger from Au Cheval

When traveling around the US, I’m always on the hunt for the best burgers.

In Connecticut, we love dining at Louis’ Lunch, known as being the place where the hamburger was created. A few other gems can be eaten at Holeman & Finch in Atlanta, Workingman’s Friend in Indianapolis and Husk in Charleston.

There are lots of great burgers available in NYC. Two great options are the lunch- only burger at Peter Luger in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Keen’s in Midtown. (FYI- both restaurants have been open since the 1880s.) Continue reading #1 Rated Burger Coming To NYC, Au Cheval Opens In Tribeca This Week!

Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge: Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

priority passIn 2017 I wrote a review of what I considered to be the most interesting Priority Pass lounge we ever visited.

The lounge I am referring to was actually a restaurant at London Gatwick Airport. The way a visit worked was that with your membership, you received a £15 credit. Guests of the  card holder also receive this credit off the bill.

When I heard that Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport had become a Priority Pass lounge, I wanted to visit but it just never worked out until our recent flight to Barcelona. Continue reading Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge: Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport

A Visit To The French Version of McD’s, Quick Burger Restaurant
