Shake Shack is DUMBO Bound

Get in line now: Shake Shack is heading to Old Fulton Street (in the former Pete’s Downtown location at Old Fulton & Water St), and located directly across from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s skyline views, might become the most scenic place to eat a burger in the city. Slated to open in mid-2014, the burger joint will fill a much needed niche in the DUMBO food scene. Hungry DUMBOnians can now get that midday milkshake and fill up on cult status cheese burgers anytime.

If the hype stays true, Shake Shack might add to the list of totally-worth-it queues already on Old Fulton Street’s sidewalks, where coal-fired pizzerias Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s, as well as the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory regularly draw near hour waits. And if the restaurant is full, you have the Old Fulton Plaza to sit and enjoy your burger and the skyline views.
