Popular burger chain Shake Shack will open a new Brooklyn location at Two Trees’ One Old Fulton Street in Dumbo in mid-2014, the management company announced today. The 3,200-square-foot location will be Shake Shack’s third Brooklyn outpost, joining the Downtown Brooklyn location at 409 Fulton Mall and a restaurant at 170 Flatbush Avenue slated to open this fall.
“The addition of Shake Shack to Dumbo further solidifies the area as one of New York’s emerging culinary destinations, joining the recently signed Dish at 81 Washington and Atrium at 15 Main Street,” said Thomas Conoscenti, director of commercial leasing at Two Trees, in a statement. “Being right across the street from Brooklyn Bridge Park and around the corner from our office tenants, Shake Shack could not have picked a better location.”
Established in Madison Square Park in 2004, Danny Meyer’s casual burger restaurant has grown to locations throughout the city, including on the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Battery Park City, Citi Field and even JFK Airport. The brand is part of Mr. Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, which includes the restaurateur’s Union Square Café and Gramercy Tavern eateries.
Expanding beyond New York, Shake Shack has opened locations in Connecticut, Florida, Washington, D.C., London and Istanbul.
