…But it’s also my favorite affordable burger joint so far in New York. The one we went to is literally a stand in the middle of Madison Square Park with outdoor seating. The line is usually ridiculously long — expect at least a 20 min wait midday — but we were lucky tonight and waited less than ten. OK fine, we had some people holding our place (thanks Farah + Co.) but STILL the line was decently short even after we got there!
I’m not particularly proud of my amateur, hastly-shot-before-devoured pictures of the Shack and Shroom burgers below, but yeah. Blame the night. Blame the poor lighting. Blame it on the goose. But trust me, it’s so so good…salted just right and tender. Please don’t make me sad by coming to NY and not trying it. That will hurt my feelings. Thanks.
