Shake Shack [409 Fulton Street] has arrived and not a moment too soon for this writer. Before locating on Fulton and Adams, I had to trek to Battery Park City to get my Double Burger with French Fries (100% free of artificial trans-fats and made from Yukon Gold potatoes, 25% less fat than average fries) and chocolate Hand-Spun shake eaten with a spoon. Yes, these shakes are thick enough to be eaten with a spoon and every spoonful is delectable. Shake Shake doesn’t come cheap though. A burger, fries and shake will cost close to $20 but it is worth every penny.
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Mayor Mike Bloomberg and others were on hand for today’s opening. Video after the jump.
Shake Shake will soon be followed by Panera Bread (coffee shop/café) in March, Sugar and Plumm (restaurant ice cream parlor), and American BBQ and Beer Company in Fall 2012.
All these new restaurants will be in close proximity on Adams Street on the western entrance to the Fulton Mall. These restaurants have two things in common, 1) they all represent quality and 2) they all are guaranteed to add to your calorie count with burgers, quality breads, desserts, beer and BBQ.
In conclusion, though not formally in the confines Brooklyn Heights, they are all close enough for all to enjoy.
Added note, considering your potential caloric intake after visiting these scrumptious eateries, the additional walk may prove advantageous.
Enjoy, I know I will.
And while we’re very excited to see Shake Shake and the others come to Downtown Brooklyn, we’ve lost Seasons in the North Heights this week.
