The Shake Shack Empire
As soon as I leave the upper east side area in comes a new and improved Barnes & Nobles, an H&M, a Sephora, and soon a Shake Shack. While I am not a big fan of fast food, I am a big fan of Danny Meyer – my love for his cuisine emblazoned in my mind after spending the perfect summer afternoon eating bite-sized samplers from all of his restaurants at Randall’s Island before the 2008 All-Star Baseball Game. Rumor has it (or else my coworker is lying to me) there will be one in Battery Park by summer 2010. See and be seen, people.
