Shake Shack is Danny Meyer’s empire of a burger spot in multiple locations throughout the city. An ode and throwback to the original, simple burger, this is one of our favorites for great on-the-go gourmet ‘fast food.’ It’s safe to say Meyer has raised the bar of all fast food around the country.

“As a restaurateur, I have a great admiration for Danny Meyer.”  – Michael Chiarello (Chef/Owner, Bottega)

“Any Danny Meyer restaurant is always a good bet.” – Nate Berkus (Interior Designer)

“I would like to swap this truck [Now Eat This!] for Danny Meyer’s empire. You think he’d go for it?” – Rocco DiSpirito (Auther, Now Eat This!)
