Finally, a reasonably healthy fast food burger restaurant on the UWS! Until a couple years ago, we only had McDonald's. When you walk into Shake Shack, you feel better because you're aware of their eco-friendly marketing campaign. The burgers are 100% All Natural Angus Beef. No Hormones and no antibiotics, ever. The burgers are served on tasty brioche buns and while they're significantly smaller than other restaurant burgers, that's ok. You don't feel too full when you're finished eating. The menu us quite basic: Hamburger, Cheeseburger, Mushroomburger and the Shack Burger. You can also throw in a Flat Top Dog and an order of fries (which aren't the pencil-thin fast food fries) but rather crinkle fries. If you're feeling especially adventurous, there is an overwelming selection of shakes and concretes (i was never able to understand the different). But, beware of very long lines. At lunchtime, the lines are wrapped around a city block. While they do move quickly (and you'll get your fancy vibrating buzzer so you can wait outside), if you're hungry, you will have to wait. And, chances are, you won't get a seat.
A friend came to visit who is a "foodie". Specifically French food. She said that Corton was a "must" on the itinerary for her visit. We were successful in getting a seating (the place books weeks in advance). The food was FABULOUS! The wine list was quite nice. The service was superb! This was an expensive dinner and at the end I felt we had gotten our money's worth . The food tastes, textures were incredible. The decor was subtle, relaxing, welcoming. Though the dining room quickly filled we never had to hunt for our server. The service was attentive yet not intrusive. The chocolates presented near the end were unusual combinations that were exceptional to taste. All in all, a fabulous dining experience - well worth the high price tag. Enjoy!
