My great friend, Sumaira Flower Ahmed, has a blog dedicated to her life as a Bostonian, reviewing bars, restaurants, and even places to get a Bikini wax in the city of Boston. Visit her amazing blog Flower: The Converted Bostonian. Although she doesn’t eat hamburgers it is the one food she misses(she may not admit it)! On a recent trip from Boston I took her to The Burger Joint for an experience of this secretive burger haven.

After a long day of work, both Sarah and I headed to shake shack. Forgetting to defrost any food to cook for dinner and being pretty tired we headed to the upper east side location. Closely located near the 4/5/6 train @ 86th street.
The experience this time was great! The past few times at UES I was a bit disappointed. I kept stating that UES needs to Learn from the original Madison Sq Park. However this time it hit the spot. I normally order the double shack with lettuce, onion and tomato. Medium is the standard on all burgers from shack shack.
Seats- Although they have outdoor seating, it still is winter. I want to be eating at a normal temperature. I do wish this location had more seats. If not more seats add outdoor heaters! It took about 5 minutes to find a seat.
The wait- this time it certainly took much longer to get our order. I don’t mind waiting if it’s worth the taste. We also don’t order much (2 burgers and 2 fries).
The burger- both rated by me and Sarah as perfectly cooked, and seasoned.
The fries- normally this location I have been disappointed. This time the fries were perfectly crunchy and not cold.
We will be back Shake Shack UES.
Mike Colameco interviews “The Magician of Meat” Pat LaFrieda and visits some restaurants around the city. I hope some of these restaurants will give me interviews as well. This clip is from last summer I believe.
The site seems to be up and running! Feel free to add us to your favorites/bookmarks and RSS. I do have some minor tweaks to make to the blog but other than that it looks great! Now I just need to shoot some footage.
This is the start of my blog to follow the progress of my documentary Burgerlution. Stay Tuned for more info…
