Lilia is one of the toughest doors in Williamsburg. The notably delicious and massively praised (five stars from Time Out) Italian restaurant from Michelin-starred chef Missy Robbins is not just one of the hottest dining spots in Brooklyn, but in the entire city thanks to her fresh house-made pastas. But if you can't finagle a reservation anytime this quarter, you can now try a little taste of Robbins' cooking outside the eatery thanks to... Shake Shack?
NYC's fast-casual behemoth is opening its first location in the neighborhood, and to celebrate, the team will be making 200 first-come, first-serve Robbins-ordained burgers. The subtly named Lilia Burger ($9.49) will have a uniquely Italian twist thanks to two stacked patties smeared with garlic herb butter and topped with a creamy parmesan fondue.
The burgers will be available opening day on Sunday, July 1 at 11am at 160 Berry Street.
