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
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! Continue reading Awesome NYC Seasonal Burger & Ice Cream Stand Mister Dips Expanding
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
Back in 2009, The Guardian 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 101 Best Burgers In America for 2018 from The Daily Meal.
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
May 28th was National Hamburger Day and the TSA wanted to clear things up when it came to burgers.
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. Continue reading Your Burger Can Fly According To The TSA On Instagram
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. Continue reading Trying The Top Rated Burger In America At Au Cheval NYC
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. Continue reading Food Review: The Cheeseburger (& Wings) at Old Town Bar in NYC
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!
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. Continue reading Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge: Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport
