Shake Shack

I may need to go on a juice fast when I get home.

Last night I ate dinner at Shake Shack. I've been wanting to go there for years, back when there was only one location in Madison Square Park. Now there's a location near Times Square that has a line out the door whenever I walk by. But that place is clearly crawling with tourists and I kind of hate the area, and since Madison Square Park isn't particularly convenient to Midtown, it was great to find that there are a few new locations, including one on the Upper West Side which turned out to be one express subway stop from here - into "real" New York. Not much of a line there, clearly patronized by locals, and plenty of places to sit. Dinner was everything I hoped and dreamed it would be.
