Shake Shack - UWS (latest update)

nativeNYer | Oct 9, 2008 09:17 PM

Here's a hot off the presses update on Shake Shack UWS:

They are a week or two from completing construction and then they need to wait for Con Ed and inspectors. We know from waiting on Grandaisy that this can take FOREVER.

Anyway, 30 seats inside, 30 seats in enclosed sidewalk area and 30 seats downstairs. Menu exactly the same except for some new concretes. There will be a separate line for all cold items and they believe the lines will be shorter b/c the kitchen is 1.5 times the size of the original location. Actually, that sounds a bit small to me. I really wonder how crazy it will be up here and how long it will last.

Oh, and they'll be a root beer tap (!), a tap devoted to seasonal, local beer and another for Shackmeister (their own beer).
