There's a new little hole in the wall on St. Mark's Place in NYC -- frustratingly, the exact name escapes me, but St. Mark's Place is like two blocks long, you'll find it -- that serves absolutely nothing but milkshakes and grilled cheese sandwiches. It is the most inspired combination ever.
Plus, the time we went in, the owner was playing a bootleg of the Beach Boys' legendary unfinished album Smile
, so it was just like home for me anyway.
ETA: A quick Google shows that the place is called The Original New York Milkshake Co., 37 St. Mark's Place, (212) 505-5200
