Shake Shack invites NYC’s top chefs for five days of gourmet burgers

Shake Shack is turning 10, and New York City’s best chefs are catering the party.

To celebrate a decade of intercontinental success (there’s a one in the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai), Shake Shack has recruited five chefs to create five special edition burgers that will be available exclusively at its original Madison Square Park location from June 9-13.

These chefs may not make a lot of burgers themselves these days, but their names are so big that they barely need introduction: Daniel Boulud, ramen mogul David Chang, “Bizarre Foods America” host Andrew Zimmern, Daniel Humm (The Nomad) and April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig). Each chef’s “culinary collaboration” will only be available for one day for $8.50, and Shake Shack will donate $1 from each burger to the Madison Square Park Conservancy and NYC Parks.

Oh, and what’s a birthday without dessert? On June 12, the Shack’s actual anniversary, free slices of cake made by Cronut impresario Dominique Ansel will be given out “in the early evening.” We presume the vagueness is to avoid gridlocking Manhattan at a certain time.

To pass the time in the inevitably hours-long line, there will also be a music festival on the 12th, and if you get hungry before you get to the front there will be a special hot dog cart serving Shack-ago Dogs, with all proceeds benefitting the park. 

Check out the full event details for a preview of each featured chef’s burger creation and more information.
