by Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka
Updated March 12, 2019

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.

Set in a historical landmark, this is one of Michigan's best restaurants. This place is wonderful for events and big parties. This establishment is known for fine food, which has a menu that focuses on seafood and wonderfully cooked steaks.

We were seated quickly at our reserved time, the service was attentive, and the three of us were very satisfied with our meals.

About the restaurant
The decor of this New Mexican restaurant is as impressive as the food. Located about 20 minutes outside of Albuquerque, this massive hacienda boasts many rooms. The terra cotta fountains, plentiful chips, salsa, guacamole, and green chile are what make this restaurant a true wonder.

About the restaurant
I have been here a few times, and every time I come to Chicago, I simply can't skip out on this place. Top Chef winner Stephane Izard creates innovative and creative food. With its small plates, you'll have to resist yourself from ordering the entire menu. Strong, flavorful food that is better after every single bite.

About the restaurant
Lidia Bastianich, acclaimed chef and TV personality, created Lidia's, which is the quintessential restaurant for rustic northern Italian cooking. Set in an old train station, the farmhouse atmosphere is perfectly rustic and elegant at the same time. The dishes are flavorful and will leave you beyond full of delicious food. When ordering, go for the pastas, especially the pasta trio that's cooked tableside. If you can find room in your stomach, you'll have to try anything with the gorgonzola sauce or the mushroom arancini.

About the restaurant
Okay let’s be honest, have you ever had a bad meal at Momofuku?! David Chang brings his seasonal, always changing, Asian-inspired menu to a bigger, badder and tastier level. Always great food done Vegas style.

Th caviar buns are a true MUST! We had a party of 6- we ordered pork belly buns/shrimp buns/caviar buns for all to start! 2 people ordered ramen bowls & loved them! The other 4- we shared the family style ribeye that was grilled to perfection! The onion rings were delicious & not greasy at all! I was the only one that had dined here before & I promise you all 5 will be repeat customers like me!

About the restaurant
Looking for the best sushi in Orlando? This is your place. The dining room is like a Vegas nightclub, but the food is as authentic as eating in Japan. Whether you sit down and share dim sum on lazy Susan's, or order straight from the gigantic sushi bar, this iron chef does it right.

Lana was a wonderful server. She confirmed what we said we wanted. She was attentive without being in the way. Lana was professional and pleasant. We loved the sashimi, spare ribs, wok vegetables and lo mein noodles. We highly recommend the 3 scoops of gelato for dessert.Sitting upstairs is a breathtaking experience to savor. We’ve been enjoying our dining experience for many years and will continue to look forward to dining with Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs.

About the restaurant
If you're in the mood for Italian cuisine, this is your place to go. Make sure to book ahead because this tiny Trattoria fills up fast. From homemade, rolled pasta to perfectly cooked Bistecca Florentine, this LA favorite is a no brainer.

My go-to pasta dish is tagliolini limone and the squash blossoms stuffed with ricotta cheese-both are so delicious. Husband enjoyed penne arrabiata. He prefers his dish very spicy; hot chile flakes were provided. Happy husband. Friendly courteous staff, owner is always available; checking in on each table. Inside is lively can be noisy (reservation Saturday at 6 pm.) Outside is quieter. Highly recommend.
