Like we really need another reason to chow down at Shake Shack? First it was the cheesy and charred griddled burgers that had people lining up (again) around the block. Then came the always sold-out fried chicken sandwich. Well get ready because Summer Shack is coming to the Hamptons.
Most people don’t realize but, “Shake Shack was actually born out of the kitchen of Eleven Madison Park,” says culinary director Mark Rosati, “in 2001, when Danny Meyer and Randy Garutti launched it as a hotdog cart in Madison Square Park.” They’ve certainly come a long way since then.
And this weekend, EMP Summer House, as the Eleven Madison Park Hamptons outpost is called, will host some coastal themed burgers topped with, you guessed it, fresh Maine lobster and crispy clams. The Hamptons-inspired menu items are called the CLAMBurger and Lobster Shack, in case there’s any confusion. Don’t worry – all the other fixings will be there to complete the decadence. Like the savory shack sauce and those crinkle cut fries, drenched in Old Bay.
Can’t make out this weekend? Have no fear; the Long Island coastline will come to you. As long as you head to the Madison Square Park location of Shake Shack, of course. Get ready to wait. As most locals and tourists alike know, people in NYC love lining up for the next best thing and this one won’t last long. Available only Aug 11-13 at both locations. Come Monday, it will all be a tasty memory.
