In late 2016 I wrote a review of the seasonal burger and ice cream stand . Mister Dips
The stand is actually an Airstream trailer located at the William Vale Hotel (in Vale Park) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Mister Dips was created by restaurateur Andrew Carmellini, famous for restaurants like The Dutch and Lafayette. Both of those restaurants serve incredible burgers although they’re a bit pricer than what you’ll find at Vale Park!

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
For quite some time, I’d wanted to dine at The Little Owl to try out their Bacon Cheeseburger.
Back in 2009,
named it the best hamburger in the world. The Little Owl is still considered one of the best burgers as it came in #11 on The Guardian from The Daily Meal. The 101 Best Burgers In America for 2018
On a recent visit to Manhattan, we decided to head over to The Little Owl to see what all of the fuss was about.

For those of you who do not know, the TSA social media account can be very helpful. If you’re unsure if an item is allowed to fly, you can send them a question via social media to find out the answer.

A 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.

Before 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.

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

In 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.

When visiting international destinations, I always visit McDonald’s to check out what local menu items might be available.
We also like to try
local fast food burger shops. I haven’t written about many of them but you can check out my review of one in Bahrain . here
During a recent trip to France, we had a long list of places to dine at. One that I hoped to try was the French version of McDonald’s called Quick.

Keens Steakhouse is one of the oldest restaurants in NYC, founded in 1885.
Keens is famous for their outstanding mutton chop which Kim and I tried a few years back and really enjoyed. There is another item on their pub menu which I’ve wanted to try for quite some time.
I finally got to try the cheeseburger at Keens Steakhouse and in no way did it disappoint!
