Shake Shack Must Love Downtown Brooklyn; Opening Second Shop At Barclays Center

Shack Shack must be cooking up a fortune at its Downtown Brooklyn Fulton Mall location, which opened in December. The New York Post reports today that the burger joint is sniffing a second neighborhood shop on Flatbush Avenue, just across from the new 18,200-seat Barclays Center.

The venue hosts its grand opening tonight with rap mogul/Nets co-owner Jay-Z beginning an eight-night concert run. Meanwhile, The Post says that the Center “is opening the floodgates to a slew of new high-end eateries, sports bars, apartment towers and retail shops.”

Among them: Trendy Delicatessen & Macbar in Manhattan is opening an offshoot eatery called Elbow Room a block away on Flatbush Avenue that also specializes in gourmet mac-and-cheese dishes. Next door, a Texas-style barbecue joint “featuring a top pitmaster from Austin” is on the way. A seafood sports lounge on Vanderbilt Street, Fish Fish, Mo Fish is in the works. And a high-end Scottish whisky bar, Duke of Montrose, is coming to Fifth Avenue and Bergen Street.

More than a dozen other new eateries are in the works within three square blocks of the arena, the Post says. TGI Friday’s, Dave & Buster’s, Starbucks and Panera Bread are also rumored to be shopping for space close to Barclays. (Photo: Heather Quinlan)

    That Brooklyn Dental Care sign must be a drag for the Shake Shack owners. Not that it appears to be hurting business, it just keeps the building looking a little sketchy.

    Shakes, cups & cones = a dentist’s dream formula for success.

    Yeah, nothing says “sketchy” like a dentist!

    Kids, I’m middle-aged, at let me tell you that sugar leads to cavities, cavities lead to crowns, crowns lead to bridges, and bridges lead to dentures. Chop, chop, chop!

    When you realize you’re going to need your teeth for as long again as you’ve already used them, you wish you’d brushed after every boysenberry yogurt.
