I try not to do too many restaurant posts, but I can't resist this one: Shake Shack is fucking fantastic.  And I'm not just saying that because they have peanut butter sundaes, which I've had a hell of a time finding in the city.  But they do, and they're good, if a bit odd--they spread the peanut butter (not PB sauce, just regular peanut butter) on the bottom of the dish, and so you scoop into it.  Kind of nice.  I also had the fries, which were pretty good, and the double burger, which was just really great, beefy and well-grilled and on a good (potato bread?) bun.  The custard was OK, a bit thin I thought, but maybe I need to try it without whipped cream and peanut butter.  The chocolate flavor was definitely the best chocolate soft ice cream I've ever had.  (Although the vanilla has a tough act to follow after some of the stuff I've experienced.)  So highly reccomended, even on rainy days.
