Beginning this Friday, June 6, Shake Shack debuts its first-ever burger collaboration, teaming up with local superchef Marc Vetri — of Amis, Vetri, Osteria, Alla Spina and Pizzeria Vetri fame — for a one-of-a-kind burger that’s set to be available through Sunday, June 15.
The inventive burger calls on inspiration from a traditional Italian carbonara meal. The Carbonara Burger promises diners an Angus burger topped with bacon, pecorino cheese, black pepper and a sunny side up egg. Yum.
The burger costs $6.75 a pop, $1 of all Carbonara Burger proceeds benefit The Vetri Foundation.
Available at all three Philadelphia-area Shake Shack locations — Center City, University City and King of Prussia — the burger is sure to satisfy.
The burger is also a celebration of the upcoming Great Chefs Event, The Vetri Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand’s fundraising event for childhood cancer.
Pair the burger with hand-cut fries and a sweet concrete and call it a day.
