Shake Shack is Coming To Midtown!
Put away your stop watches and metro cards and complex maps with the quickest route to Madison Square Park, because this news is huuuuge. There’s a big article in this mornings New York Times about Danny Meyer and his growing Shake Shack empire, and it includes the bombshell that Midtown is getting its own Shake Shack! It’s going to be on 44th and 8th, and will open next year along with new locations in Soho, the UES, and Miami Beach. The Times solicited a reaction from Schnipper’s Quality Kitchen, which is just a few blocks away from where the new Shake Shack will go, and unsurprisingly have expansion plans of their own (the owners of Schnipper’s founded Hale & Hearty soup.) They were said to be “sanguine”, which could be code for “deliriously in shock.” I know I am!!! [Photo and Story courtesy of Eater]
