And this is not a bad thing! Shake Shack Logan Circle and Navy Yard opened last month and also has locations in Dupont, Union Station and outside the Spy Museum. Next up from a press release:
“Officials from Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW), the developer of The Wharf, today announced that Shake Shack will open in Fall 2017. The Wharf is the $2 billion, mile-long waterfront neighborhood along the Washington Channel of the Potomac River—the new food destination of the nation’s capital.
“We are delighted to welcome Danny Meyer’s iconic Shake Shack to The Wharf,” said Amer Hammour, Chairman of Madison Marquette. “This globally popular concept is an excellent fit for the waterfront, and Shake Shack adds a touch of fun and variety to our dining scene,” Hammour added.

Shake Shack, the critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand founded by restaurateur Danny Meyer, will join nearly 20 food establishments opening at The Wharf this fall (including Del Mar by Fabio and Maria Trabocchi, Requin by Mike Isabella and Jennifer Carroll, a three-story Italian market and restaurant by Nick Stefanelli, Blue Bottle, and much more). Shake Shack’s Wharf Street location is approximately 3,500-square-feet, includes an interior mezzanine and outdoor waterfront seating.
“Just as Shake Shack has revolutionized the burger culture in this country, The Wharf is set to transform the nation’s capital in ways it has never seen before,” said Monty Hoffman Founder and CEO of PN Hoffman.” The waterfront is exuberant and Shake Shack plays a big role in this transformation.”
The Shake Shack menu will feature ingredients from local purveyors from the District in addition to Shack classics and frozen custard confections.”
