Regularly voted ‘best burger in Manhattan,' this burger is also one of the cheapest. While Shake Shack restaurants are now spread all over New York, the original is in a kiosk in the middle of Madison Square Park.
The chef Danny Meyer still masters the art of serving delicious burgers, perfectly designed, tremendously juicy, and dripping with melted cheese. Among the specialties are the Shack Burger with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and secret sauce, or the SmokeShack, a cheeseburger topped with wood-smoked bacon and chopped cherry peppers, those small round peppers stuffed with goat cheese.
The dessert menu is impressive, with milkshakes made with egg custard, or ice cream in a cone or a bowl. For those watching their weight, each dish shows its calorie count. An experience not to be missed, even if you have to expect long queues at lunchtime.
