The Shake Shack

shake_shackMy friend Dave tells me that there’s a famous place in California called The Shake Shack. I guess this is that place although I’ve never been.

I’ll be in Orange County in a couple weeks and if I have time, I’ll try to visit the place.

But in the meantime, we’ve got our own Shake Shack now in New York City.

Right smack in the middle of Madison Square Park, they’ve built a great buger/hot dog/fries/milkshake joint. The lines can be long, but the wait is worth it.

In the spirit of blogging, I won’t review it. I’ll link to NYC Eats and my man Jackson with whom I visited the place this week.

Looks like we blew it by not getting the frozen custard. I won’t make that mistake again.

I also was really thrilled to find out that the place is staffed by seven kids from nearby Washington Irving High School. They need the work and by my measure, they are doing a great job.

If you are in the area, I highly recommend stopping by for a burger, dog, and/or shake.
