Day 30: Shake Shack

In Best burgers in NYC, Milkshakes and Sundaes, NYC Parks, NYC Restaurants, things to do in NYC on June 30, 2009 at 11:26 pm


Nestled under the trees in the southeast corner of Madison Square Park, with tables and chairs on a floor of gravel, reminiscent of a traditional biergarten but with a menu of ultimate all-American eats, Shake Shack is a summertime do. It’s typical for the line to snake nearly as far as the park’s entrance gates, but don’t let that deter you. Once you make it to the over-sized menu boards you’ll realize it’s worth it. Burgers, hot-dogs and fries—from your most basic to the most piled high with savory toppings; and for dessert—frozen custard in daily special flavors, milkshakes and concretes— a custard base with your choice of mix-ins, from the divine list that includes shortbread cookie, peanut butter sauce and Valrhona chocolate chunks, to name a few. Day or night it’s a great way to spend some city downtime outdoors. Just make sure you go hungry.
