PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — David Ralic of Ralic’s Steakhouse (top photo) is rolling out his “The Weight Is Over” menu at his Haddonfield, NJ restaurant, inspired by his recent weight loss surgery and his personal need for smaller, nutritionally balanced, moist meals.

“Well, this is our fifteenth Shake Shack,” notes owner Danny Meyer.  “That’s if you include three seasonal Shacks we have in sports facilities.  I think it’s fair to say it’s an international brand, because we’ve got two in the Middle East — one in Dubai and one in Kuwait City.”
