Don your best burger appetites and head to the original Shake Shack in New York City’s Madison Square Park this week, from Monday (9 June) to Friday (13 June), because you're heading for a culinary treat. The NYC-rooted burger joint is collaborating with a world-class line-up of chefs, including Daniel Boulud, David Chang, Andrew Zimmern, Daniel Humm, April Bloomfield, and Dominique Ansel to celebrate its 10th Anniversary, since opening its first joint.
Curated by Shake Shack’s Culinary Director Mark Rosati, the first five aformentioned chefs will make one burger, selling for $8.50 each, with Shake Shack donating $1 from each burger to the Madison Square Park Conservancy and NYC Parks. Pastry chef, Dominique Ansel will create a Shack-inspired cake that will be given out to guests free-of-charge in the early evening, while slices last.
On Thursday (12 June) - Shake Shack’s actual birthday - the Madison Square Park location will host the Decade of Shack-Fest, where there will be live music from Catey Shaw, The Tall Pines, Cheerleader, Ski Lodge, and Miniature Tigers, and a special hot dog cart will be on-site serving complimentary “pay what you’d like” Shack-cago Dogs with all proceeds benefiting the park, while supplies last. There will also be a HENGE concrete ping pong table setup to build up your appetite.
Shake Shack has also collaborated with Brooklyn Brewery to create a special edition beer called SHACK X IPA, which boasts a reddish-copper hue with hints of caramel and roasted malt. At the Thursday celebrations SHACK X IPA will be served in a commemorative Decade of Shack 16oz. cup that guests can keep.
