RE: The Shake Shack
You've got to hand it to Danny Meyer. Along with being one of New York's finest upscale restauranteurs (Union Square Cafe, etc.) he truly has the heart of a Roadfoodie. He opened Blue Smoke, a hit-and-miss (fortunately, more hit than miss these days) but lovingingly-rendered barbeque joint and a wonderfully-reviewed Chicago Hot Dog cart and the Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. By the way, Mr. Meyer is also one of the movers and shakers behind the Farmer's Market in Union Square.
