Shake Shack, Upper East Side
Upper East Side

The Upper East Side location of Danny Meyer’s burger stand serves Shack standards, along with a menu of frozen concretes exclusive to this location (the “Pineapple Upper East Side Cake” is made of pineapple, shortbread and maraschino cherries). Carnivores of all sizes love the burgers made from fresh-ground sirloin and brisket and tucked inside a pillowy potato roll; vegetarians will be more than happy to sink their teeth into a satisfying portobello cap stuffed with cheese and onions. Though the single patties ($4.50) are kid-sized, a ten-spot will get Mom and Dad a Shackburger and a Budweiser.
