Shake Shack Takes Over ABC Achrafieh

I remember the first time I visited Shake Shack in New York City; it was a freezing day in November and I waited for a full hour nearly 2 blocks away from the eatery to get in with my friends. At the time, I thought to myself: this wait definitely means that there must be some really good food in there! You see, for New Yorkers, Shake Shack is a phenomenal burger experience that gets you every time and keeps you coming back!

Luckily for us here in Lebanon, Shake Shack debuted late last year in Beirut City Center to more than positive reviews. A few months later, there I was at the restaurant’s second opening in ABC Achrafieh on a busy Thursday afternoon. The place was literally packed; everyone was enjoying their favorite item from the menu, from sumptuous burgers and hot dogs to fresh milk shakes (their strawberry milkshake is absolute heaven) to the signature concretes (the red velvet concrete is my new obsession)!

I was also lucky to meet Marc Rosati, who is Shake Shack’s Culinary Director. Marc is an absolute food genius who – in my opinion- makes the brand an absolute joy and inspiration to those coming to experience it. You can learn more about Marc Rosati by reading his interview with Blog of the Boss here!

It was my greatest pleasure to be invited to Victoria’s Secret’s opening in ABC Achrafieh on Wednesday, March 19th! A day before the official opening, the brand invited select media and bloggers to experience the iconic lingerie boutique firsthand.

As a huge fan of the brand and a regular client overseas, I was positively impressed with every little detail. The display is just amazing and the assortment is so rich! From underwear to clothing, bikinis to beauty essentials, PINK and sensational fragrances, the boutique is stocked with essentials to make every girl feel like an angel!

I specifically loved the huge video screens that play iconic footage from the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, including the 2013 edition that featured angel Candice Swanepoel wearing the 10 million dollar royal fantasy bra.
