Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka's 10 Favorite Restaurants Across the U.S.

Powerhouse Hollywood couple—and parents of twins—David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris may live in New York, but their busy lives take them all around the country. David, a professional chef who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, started a catering company in LA and became a Food Network star. Neil has been a successful actor for most of his life, but his long-standing passion for all things delicious grew over the years, and he’s now seen as an authority on food and dining too. With all the traveling they do, we asked them which U.S. restaurants they savor the chance to eat at.
