shake shack comes to d.c.

when we lived in nyc, one of my all time favorite places for a burger and fries was shake shack.
and in May, they made their way down to d.c. opening a shack in dupont circle. we tried it out with these friends last week and it really hit the spot. their fries are the best.

the raspberry granola crunch frozen custard is so good!
and below, E has a little crush on miss carissa. she loves her.

    you always can tell someone loves a child when they make ridiculous faces if it makes them smile. :) i've been craving those fries dipped in that custard even since…

    I wish they would open a Shake Shack in London – their burgers look so good, I am dying to try them. Maybe I'll have to come all the way to the US to try them. I would seriously go all that way for an awesome burger.

    Oh yes and you already know this of course, but Eleanor is one of the cutest little things I have ever seen. Every photo you post of her makes me smile :)

  11. Guess who gets to eat at the Shake Shack THIS WEEK? Me.

  12. I'm going to DC and NY in three weeks and we are going to the Shake Shack in Madison Square park. I can't wait! Any suggestions on what to get or is it all good?

    Raspberry granola crunch frozen custard??? You've gotta be kidding me! That sounds amazing. And that little apple outfit on your baby is so adorable too =)

    I can't believe the east coast finally has frozen custard! That looks amazing. Our friends would come out to visit us in Wisconsin and of course we would introduce them to frozen custard. Best thing ever!!! You guys are adorable!

  15. Your mini rockstar is absolutely precious. Haha she gets cuter every single post!

    I love all of your tips for sightseeing around D.C. My family almost moved there when I was little, but chose Seattle instead. I haven't been since I was 5 and I'm dying to visit!

    I tried Shake Shack for the first time this past Spring Break when I went to NYC.

    I just found this part of your blog, I'm a fairly new reader but I LOVE everything about your blog. Anyhow… I'm a Washingtonian and I've been hunting around for the best burgers and milkshakes (SUCH a milkshake fan) in DC also. I found the Shake Shack disappointing, especially after all the hype! However, I see Good Stuff Eatery is missing from your blog! Have you tried it yet? It's down in the Eastern Market area on Penn Ave, and honestly, the BEST burger I've ever had AND best milkshake. Absolutely incredible. Thankfully it's nowhere close to where I live, otherwise I'd be there ALL the time. Also, I just tried Bobby's Burgers on K Street and it's almost as good as Good Stuff. Not quite though :)
