But more importantly, let’s cut to the chase: the burgers. Starting June 9th, each day of the week will showcase a different burger from a different chef. At $8.50 a piece, one dollar from each burger sold will be donated to the Madison Square Park Conservancy and NYC Parks.
Daniel Boulud kicks off Shake Shack’s birthday with “the Piggie Shack,” on Monday, June 9th. This beauty contains the classic Shack beef-blend with BBQ pulled pork, jalapeño mayo, lettuce and a mustard-vinegar slaw, served on Shake Shack’s potato bun. Now that’s a hell of a burger.
Tuesday, June 10th showcases David Chang’s “Momofuku Shrimp Stack,” loaded with a Shack beef-blend cheeseburger topped with a smoked and griddled shrimp patty, Momofuku Hozon Sauce, Bibb lettuce, pickled onion and salted cucumber.
Andrew Zimmern’s goat burger, the “AZ Cabrito Butter Burger,” with herb butter, roasted tomato, charred onion and sweet pickle will be served on Wednesday, June 11th.
Chef Daniel Humm’s burger, the “Humm Burger,” is a Shack blend-beef cheeseburger topped with applewood smoked bacon, celery relish, Bibb lettuce, truffle mayo and shaved fresh black truffle, served on Thursday, June 12th.
Friday, June 13th marks the final celebratory burger from Chef April Bloomfield, the “Breslin Burger”: a Breslin beef-blend burger topped with applewood smoked bacon and Tickler English cheddar cheese sauce.
With only 1,000 burgers per day and a limit of two per customer, I can only imagine how packed it will be and how far the line will stretch throughout the park. Especially when there’s Dominique Ansel’s cake for dessert.

Happy Birthday, Shake Shack!
