Black and Orange – Washington, DC

In DC for a business meeting, I decided to blow off the cocktail party and go for a walk – to the Jefferson Memorial.  In all of the years that I’ve been traveling to the Capitol, I have been fortunate enough to see most of the monuments except for those on the southern-most side of […]

Minetta Tavern – NYC

As we were finishing up the weekend in New York, we headed down to Greenwich Village for Sunday brunch at Minetta Tavern.  For the majority of the weekend it had rained, so when we woke up and the sun was (almost) shining, we decided to walk the forty blocks to brunch.  Now these were short […]

Adrienne’s Pizzabar – NYC

On a rainy Saturday morning, we headed down to the Financial District.  One of my co-workers had sent me a link to a pizza place that a friend of his said was the best in the city.  We didn’t really have any plans for the morning, so I googled them, found they didn’t have a […]

Burger Joint – NYC

I first heard about the Burger Joint in le Parker Meridian four or five years ago when I asked a business colleague where to find the best burger in NYC. I was shocked to hear that it was behind a giant velvet curtain, in the lobby of a fairly swank hotel, near Central Park. Then […]

Tune Inn Restaurant – Washington, DC

The third stop in our DC burger adventure was just behind the Capitol building, the Tune Inn Restaurant.  In the same family since 1955, the thing that struck me most was the note on the menu that they hold the District of Columbia’s second oldest pouring license, dating back to 1947.  This place is a […]

Ben’s Chili Bowl – Washington, DC

March was a great burger month.  I headed up to DC on business for three nights and managed to squeeze in three burger joints.  The first was Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street.  We took a cab up from where we were staying, giving the cabbie the address.  We drove around for quite a bit, […]

Cheesesteaks – Philadelphia, PA

So we asked everyone we met in Philadelphia where we should go for a cheesesteak. We got almost as many answers as there were people we asked. So we decided that we’d make it easier and narrow it down to two that were across the street from each other – Geno’s Steaks and Pat’s King […]

Charlie’s Hamburgers – Folsom, PA

In the summer of 2010, we took a trip to “Amish Country”, flying into Philadelphia, driving across to Pittsburgh and flying home. We spent the first couple of days in Philly, then headed west. The first burger destination? Charlie’s Hamburgers in Folsom, PA, a small town southwest of Philadelphia. This was about the time I […]

Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage, Cambridge, MA

One of the many places recommended by Hamburger America is Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage in Cambridge – right across the street from Harvard University. Open since 1960, they’ve got this serving-burgers-to-the-masses thing going on. To the right, Madison and I are giving our orders to someone outside as we’re in line so that we can […]

Tavern on the Green – New York City, NY

If I recall correctly, this was actually the first day that it occurred to me to take a picture of food and where I was eating. For the years leading up to their sixteenth birthdays, I had told both of our girls that when each of them turned sixteen that I’d take them anywhere in […]
