Island Burgers & Shakes

November 7, 2011

This weekend my friend Kelly was here, and we ran around town (literally) for 2 days doing all sorts of fun activities like wedding dress shopping and cheering on our friends running the NYC Marathon. With little time to spare, Island Burgers and Shakes was the perfect quick stop for a delicious and filling meal on Saturday afternoon. Difficult to choose from the never-ending menu, we went with the Mona Lisa Churasco, a grilled chicken sandwich with mozzarella, pesto, sauteed onions, mushrooms, roasted peppers and Parmagiana reggiano on ciabatta. And I had the Roma Churasco, grilled chicken with thyme, rosemary, garlic, oregano and red pepper.

5 Napkin Burger

I know I’ve already featured 5 Napkin’s Deep Fried Pickles, but after ordering out from here not once, but twice over the weekend with friends and roommates, I decided it was worth another blog post. This time showing off their veggie burger and fries. And they’ve recently opened up a joint in Boston as well, so it’s not just limited to New Yorkers anymore.
