#MeetMajority: We Play (and Eat) to Win
The Majority Strategies team spends months on the road throughout the year, traveling across the nation and back again to meet with clients in all 50 states.
These #roadwarriors know a thing or two about life on the road and one of the greatest challenges …
Where to eat!
Those who know us well, you already know Randy will always stop at a Popeyes and Brett loves Denny’s, but even these two know there’s more food options out there, from fast food to fine dining.
In this week’s edition of #MeetMajority, the Majority Strategies team of strategists weigh in on their favorite restaurants across America and offer some of their best tips for the road-weary warrior in search of a good meal.
“Washington, D.C., has no shortage of great restaurants. I’ve had great Mexican food at Tortilla Coast and the best burger at Bullfeathers. New York City is similar with an almost overwhelming number of options. When I’m there, I hit Gari for sushi and Estiatori Milos for great Greek options.”
– Brett Buerck, Chief Executive Officer
“When I’m driving, I make it a point to eat at fast food places that I can’t find at home. It’s a bit of a game with highway exits. Whataburger here. Krystal there. Even Rally’s and Dairy Queen. Once I’ve reached my destination, I like to visit my client’s favorite spot, a local legend, or a place that’s new to both of us.”
– Anthony Ramirez, State Strategist
“When you’re in New York City, definitely make it a point to stop and get a cappuccino and biscotti at Ferrara Bakery in Little Italy. Especially over the holidays, that cafe comes to life – it’s like magic.”
– Kial Vidic, State Strategist
“When I’m in Michigan, I make sure to get to a Coney Island – life changing. My day starts with Dunkin' Donuts coffee, everywhere I can find it. In Washington, D.C., I share Brett’s suggestion of Bullfeathers or Tortilla Coast. When all else fails, I’ll hit Panera.”
– Jason McBride, Senior National Strategist
“I could go on forever, but overall, Waffle House and Chick-fil-A are always a good option. In Raleigh, North Carolina, there’s Players' Retreat for burgers or the Chicken Gus. You can get quick and easy Mexican at Cabo’s Island Grill & Bar in Tallahassee. Rappahannock has great oysters if you’re in Richmond, Virginia, and I never miss a chance to stop at Saw’s Soul Kitchen in Birmingham, Alabama.”
– Josh Kivett, National Strategist
“I had been going to Starbucks almost exclusively, but lately I’ve started researching local coffee shops to mix things up. I’ve enjoyed Workshop Café in San Francisco, Eggs Up Café in Greenville, South Carolina, and Scenic Route Bakery in Des Moines, Iowa.”
– Evan Stewart, Majority Hunter
“Without fail, every time I'm in New Mexico I eat breakfast at the New Mexico Beef Jerky Company. They have the best huevos rancheros with green chile. I'm convinced it's the #1 breakfast in America.”
– Aaron Whitehead, State Strategist
“I’ll second Josh’s vote for Chick-fil-a and add in Cracker Barrel, but I also use Amazon Fresh. If I’m going to be in a hotel two nights or longer, I order peanut butter, jelly, bread, bananas, honey, Gatorade, and some chocolate milk. It’s less than eating out, easier, and healthier. I just put in my hotel as a delivery address and pick it up when I check in.”
– Chris Faulkner, Senior National Strategist
“In New Orleans, you have to stop at Drago's for chargrilled oysters. I like the Daily Grill in Washington, D.C., for some of the best food at a reasonable price. Jack’s Barbecue in Nashville is in the heart of Broadway’s night life.”
– Randy Kammerdiener, President and Senior National Strategist
