Yes, there was intelligent life B.S.S. There were some very plausible burgers too, even if the mound of fatty meat scraped from the eye-level griddle at Corner Bistro now seems...well, so primitive.
B.S.S.? Oh, Before Shake Shack. The Shack celebrated its tenth anniversary this year, but the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridian sprang into life behind its heavy, secluding curtain back in 2002. Eater has a very good video about the first ten years here.
