Three makes a trend — and Brooklyn is trending toward Shake Shack!
The milkshake and burger joint is coming to DUMBO, making it the third in the borough by the time it opens in the old Pete’s Downtown location in mid-2014.
The upscale burger chain announced the new restaurant on Wednesday. Shake Shack will take over the large space in the prime location on Old Fulton Street at Water Street, steps from the Brooklyn Bridge Park, and its opening will come on the heels of a new Barclays Center location.
“Amazing views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline? We’re in!” Shake Shack said on its Facebook page.
Restaurateurs Danny Meyer’s famous patty parlor will fill a restaurant space that has been vacant since the landmark Pete’s Downtown closed in early 2012. The corner building, built in 1835, once housed the Franklin House Hotel, which anchored an important center of trade before the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. The new Shake Shack will have some iconic neighbors to contend with, sitting next door to the River Cafe and down Old Fulton Street from Grimaldi’s.
The cow product–centric eatery’s first location opened to great fanfare in 2011.Reach reporter Jaime Lutz at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (718) 260-8310. Follow her on Twitter @jaime_lutz.
