You wouldn''t be the first ETSY employee to live in Manhattan.

Wasn't a fan of Shake Shack when I was there last month, and being from Canada where it's illegal to serve medium rare ground beef, that's exactly what I'm looking for.

Shake Shack's a good option when you're at JFK, but I wouldn't trek particularly far to go to one. Maybe if it's across the street from you and you're hungry.

the problem with the Shake Shack burger is the Chicken 'Shack Sandwich.

I do not get the Shake Shack love, especially on a place as particular as SF. It's like if everyone agreed the best ties were from Brooks Bros. Yeah, they're sort of OK, but if you want to be obsessive enough, you can do much better. Why not at least JG Melon? Or Salvation Burger, which I haven't been to but have heard a lot about?

I prefer my burger to taste and feel like a backyard barbecue day burger, right off the grill onto a soft bun, on the smallish side.  I'm not into massive hunks of patty with artisanal signature blends, half-inch tomato slices, served open because they can't be closed, and that people cut in half on their plate to eat.   I actually really despise those.    So, yeah, for me, Shake Shack is exactly what I want.   Or Burger Joint, if you want another similar example.   Elevated burgers is exactly what I stay away from.    To each his own burger

Gramercy Tavern. Minetta's black label is overrated unless you want undercooked and dripping into a too-soft bun.

The smoke or whatever it is at Shake Shack is delicious, but not so delicious after the obligatory 20 minute line.
