Stand Review

We had lunch at Stand yesterday since Shake Shack was closed due to some electricity issue. We each had a classic burger medium rare - I liked the fact that one has a choice, shared a small fries, and I had (half) a Toasted Marshmallow milkshake. The latter was delicious, and had toasted marshmallow on top - could have drunk the whole thing, but didn't due to my NY resolution of exercising restraint. The french fries were great - crispy on the outside - they bring you sea salt to sprinkle on them, as well as catsup and mayonnaise. They also offer shoestring fries, and the onion rings looked good as well. The hamburger and bun were both nicely grilled, and the hamburger is much bigger than the one at Shake Shack - $9. Overall - a very good lunch. My husband and I both like the bun at Shake Shack better, and I think the two are just two different experiences, one not better than the other. Lots of microbrew on tap - the bartender gave my husband a taste of one, and a full bar. I think the bill before tip was about $30.

Went to Joe's afterward to try an espresso - didn't like it - too bitter for my taste - and too hot and a bit oily.
