You Gotta Try the Blasé Burger: Critic Tom Sietsema is nonplussed by all the fuss over Danny Meyer‘s double Shack power play. “At this point, the opening of another burger spot is about as exciting for some of us as watching paint dry. Aren’t we full? Having experienced my first Shake Shack at the race track in Saratoga, N.Y., last summer, I found it difficult to muster enthusiasm for another crusty patty served in a slip of wax paper and crinkle-cut fries pulled from the freezer.” [WaPo]

You Like-a Da Juice, Ah? Writer Kate Neremberg tries to crack the code of what’s in the copious steak sauce at Medium Rare: “The makeup of the sauce on the steak frites remains a secret. Whatever it is—we taste cream, mustard, and black peppercorns—it’s good.” [Washingtonian]
