Shake Shack to open in Stratford

image001

Danny Meyer’s Covent Garden venture Shake Shack divides critics, but love it or loathe it we’re getting another one. The NYC restaurateur’s Union Square Hospitality Group plan to launch a second London site in mid-2015, this time in Stratford’s expansive Westfield shopping centre.

His marketeers say this Shack “will build on the success of the original” – which according to fans who took part in this year’s survey includes “stonking” burgers and “amazing shakes”. However the US-inspired joint doesn’t do much better than Byron when it comes to ratings for food, service and atmosphere.

On the menu: Angus beef burgers, griddle-crisp flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine. Plus Shake Shack’s trademarked specialities the ShackBurger®, SmokeShackâ„¢, ‘Shroom Burger and Shack-cago Dog.

The interiors, as is de rigueur, are mostly made from reclaimed materials – including retired rooftop water towers from Manhattan.
