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.

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.

Loved the shaded outdoor patio seating. Service was attentive and friendly. The taco salad on the lunch menu was very good and a very generous portion.

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.

Everything was great here. I sat at the bar and was greeted quickly and in a friendly manner. The bartender suggested some options, which I chose, and he was not wrong. The pork shank was amazing, and green beans shouldn’t be allowed to be that good. 10/10, would recommend.

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.

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.

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.

I spent weeks trying to decide were to have an important business dinner. I must have considered a hundred restaurants before deciding on Angelini Osteria. It was the right choice. What matters most to me in a restaurant is a warm, friendly and kind staff, great food and a comfortable but not stuffy ambience. Angelini delivers on all this and then some! The staff is genuinely friendly and welcoming, a meal here os about the customer not the staff and this you can't fake. I've been dining at Angelini for 20+ years and will for 20+ more!
