Shake Shack actually isn’t on my favorites list.
Yes, my heart does go a flutter when I see it in the airport food wasteland at JFK’s International terminal. But other than delighting my daughter with unusually flavored custards and shakes, my vegetarian food choices are limited to a greasy grilled cheese (hamburger bun with American Cheese) and greasy rarely-hot enough imitation Nathan’s french fries.
However, the location at Madison Square Park does make the list because it has such a nice outdoor seating area with plenty of relatively comfortable seats and these charming Mediterranean-style globe lights strung between the trees.
And the shakes are pretty good.
