Danny Meyer’s original Shake Shack, a take-out kiosk that opened in Madison Square Park in 2004, not only helped raise funds to spruce up the park, but also launched an international burger chain. The menu has three basic components—Shack Burgers (a thin-patty burger served on a pillowy potato roll), traditional Chicago-style hot dogs loaded with condiments, and extra thick frozen custard. That original kiosk now anchors a mini empire with seven locations throughout the city, including one at the Mets’ Citi Field.
