Hotel Le Bleu is a boutique hotel in name only, but it does offer a frugal means of enjoying one of Brooklyn’s nicest neighborhoods. Just don’t drink the coffee or eat the breakfast.
The Archer Hotel has a little too much going on and a few too many floors and (way small) rooms to be considered a genuine boutique hotel, although it certainly makes such claims early and often on its website. If you are riding Amtrak, however, and you have the scratch, it is a nice oasis in the midst of Manhattan. Just be ready for the price.
Trains and slow travel are virtually synonymous, and night trains are the old school form of train travel. During 2013 and 2014, Team Mago had an opportunity to travel on several night trains in the US and Europe. In this post, Morgan provides a review and comparison of these night trains he has known.
In this restaurant review of McCrady’s in Charleston SC, Morgan decides that although the desserts were good, Chef Brock’s attention seems to be elsewhere these days.
Husk was a nice casual restaurant with a few stand out dishes, but it was not to McCrady’s as David Link’s Cochon is to his Herb Sainte. Brock’s nouveau southern cuisine needs more of a punch in terms of robust flavor profiles.
A good local restaurant. The best dish of the evening was steamed long neck clams served in a saucy lake of beer, onions, bacon, and red pepper flakes.
We love this place. The bison burger was not only cooked to a perfect medium rare, but the best tasting specimen of its type that any of Team Mago has sampled.
The MagoGuide Team scheduled a trip from Arkansas to Virginia and we took the opportunity to try out each of the three 21c Museum Hotels and their restaurants.
In our book The Best of MagoGuide 2011-2012 we take you on a journey through Sicily and the midwest of the United States including restaurant reviews.
Our two starters were K.B.C. crab cakes with jalapeño tartar sauce and lentil falafel accompanied by tzatziki and harissa sauce as well as marinated tomatoes.
