Shake Shack Will Find Your Belly – Wherever you are…

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.”

    They could more easily find my belly if they also opened a location in the Park Place space at Petworth metro.

      Speaking of Park Place… what the heck is up with that Wells Fargo ATM? Did they abandon all plans to build an actual Wells Fargo branch there, and decide to leave it as just an ATM vestibule?? Seems like a major waste of space to have an ATM vestibule with a bank-sized empty space behind it.

      (Not that Park Place is known for making good use of its space, but even still…)

    Yay! I don’t eat beef, but I will walk over for a chicken sandwich every now and then. Poor Z-Burger.. I mean All About Burger.

    • SouthwestMonster

      All About is awful. I won’t be sad to see them go.

    Maybe one day DC will try to get a good burger place again. What was the last good burger place to open here? Maybe the Burger Joint? Is that even open any more? It’s sad this city has such a burgeoning food landscape yet is getting over saturated in bad burgers.

      Not burger joints but Pearl Dive and Le Dip have the best burgers in the city. IMHO.

        There are definitely good burgers to be had. But as you mentioned those are more or less sit down places with a good burger. I would love a burger centric place a la Ray’s Hell Burger or hell even Good Stuff in a more central location. Or multiple locations. I know Rays Hell opened up on 4th street but I have heard it is not as good as the Arlington location. But please for the love of god someone end this madness and open a good burger spot!
