Shake Shack Celebrates Shacktoberfest and Its Newest Location in Grand Central!
Though Munich might be about 4000 miles away, Shake Shack on the other hand, is not! In celebration of Oktoberfest, Shake Shack is having their 8th annual Shacktoberfest beginning this Friday, October 4th through Sunday, October 13th, with a menu featuring various brats, wursts, and special desserts.
Additionally, Midtown East Lunch’ers can finally access Shake Shack a bit easier with the opening of its newest location in the lower level concourse of Grand Central Terminal this Saturday, October 5th! Though the location will not be participating in Shacktoberfest, Grub Street has reported that the location will be serving up some new things including Shackmeister Ale in commuter bottles, a special “GCT Constellation” concrete, and hand-cut fresh french fries, instead of frozen krinkle fries, which are currently only available at the UES location. If anyone grabs a pair of their opening day “Shack Shades,” save a pair for me?
Highlights from the Shacktoberfest menu after the jump…
Highlights from the 2013 Shacktoberfest menu include:
1) Cheddar Brat Burger (Pictured above on the Right): 100% all-natural Angus beef burger topped with a flat-top griddled cheddar bratwurst, crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots and ShackSauce ($7.50)
2) Currywurst (pictured above on the left): Bavarian Brat topped with crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots and curry ketchup ($5.25)
3) German Chocolate Pecan Concrete (pictured above, middle): Chocolate frozen custard blended with coconut-pecan caramel and chocolate truffle cookie dough (Single: $4.25 | Double: $6.50)
According to Shake Shack, their Shacktoberfest brats and sausages are all made by Schaller & Weber, an NYC-butcher specializing in German sausages since 1937.
Cheers to a hearty Shacktoberfest!
