Island Burgers & Shakes was born!
In the midst of 10 feet high snow drifts, in the middle of January 1996, Hell’s Kitchen’s residents got their first taste of a restaurant dedicated to the all American classic.
Years ahead of the current burger craze, Island Burgers & Shakes dedicated itself to the freshest quality meats and produce and continues that practice to this day.
A full service restaurant with over 64 options of burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches (churascos) and thick creamy handmade milk shakes have made Island Burgers & Shakes a Hell’s Kitchen institution.
The restaurant’s reputation does not end at 9th Avenue and 57th street. It is a world famous food destination listed in all of the major European and Asian guide books.
And now after many moons Island Burgers & Shakes is coming to Mark’s former neighborhood, the upper west side, locals can enjoy the offerings of the Mark and Will’s great burger joint, Island Burgers & Shakes at 422 Amsterdam Avenue Btw 80th and 81st street.
