When visiting an international destination, I always make it a point to visit McDonald’s.

Besides being a real treat for my kids, I love seeing what interesting (and sometimes local) menu items might be offered.

I’ve also been to some very interesting looking McDonald’s. A couple that stand out is one with Maori cavings in New Zealand and another in Pennsylvania which has a train car attached to it! Continue reading Bad News: Unique McDonald’s Times Square Closing For Good

Times Square is an area in NYC that I try my best to avoid.

With an abundance of bright lights and costume characters, there’s also no shortage of mega-stores like M&Ms World, Hershey’s Chocolate World, Disney Store, a giant Toys R Us with a ferris wheel inside.

Food options aren’t great in the area and I’d recommend trying the amazing onion soup burger at Le Rivage which is a short walk away.

If you’re a fan of breakfast, specifically cereal and you’ll be near Times Square you’ll soon have an interesting place to dine. Continue reading Kellogg’s Cereal Restaurant Opening in NYC

The Amazing French Onion Soup Burger at Le Rivage NYC

Le Rivage NYC

Kim and I recently went to see Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour on Broadway.

With the show starting at 7:30 PM and lasting for around two hours, we needed to find a place to go for dinner close by (before the show).

Since I try to avoid the Times Square area as much as possible, I wasn’t really sure where we should dine. But then I remembered a place that I had read about a while back which served a burger that won the New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Burger Bash in 2013.

That made our decision easy. Kim and I headed to a pre-theater dinner at Le Rivage NYC. Continue reading The Amazing French Onion Soup Burger at Le Rivage NYC
