The meat counter will also sell the pork chops that inspired a cult following at the little owl. “People always asked me, ‘Where do you get your meat? Where do you get your meat?’ I put like three things on it and that’s it. But nobody could get it before,” Campanero tells us. Meanwhile, the magic meat that haunts the dreams of New York’s burger lovers will come in preformed patties of about eight ounces, with a little card written by Price, the restaurant's executive chef, saying how to cook them. Of if you really want to have the Shake Shack experience, get them in four-ounce patties. You don’t even have to stand in line holding a vibrator.
Update: Mark Pastore of Pat LaFrieda has called to tell us that, while the hamburger that will be sold at Market Table will be close in flavor to the burgers he supplies to Shake Shack, the blend is by no means exactly the same. If you want the official Shake Shack burger, in other words, you have to go to the Shake Shack.
