Crescent Property Services LLC today announced that Shake Shack – the modern day ‘roadside’ burger spot which began in 2001 as a hot dog cart in New York City – will open its first Dallas location at The Crescent in Uptown Dallas. The restaurant, to be situated in The Crescent’s newly proposed park area at the corner of McKinney Avenue and Pearl Street, will have indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds. Shake Shack is expected to open in 2016.
Shake Shack’s high-quality food at a value has resulted in a cult-like following. Founded in New York City, the brand now has several restaurants in the U.S. in cities such as Chicago, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Austin and international locations including London, Istanbul and Dubai.
Although its design will reflect the high-end architecture of The Crescent, the Dallas site will very much resemble Shake Shack’s original 2004 location in Madison Square Park. The location will be available for special events.
This is the second new restaurant coming to The Crescent. Officials announced that Ascension® coffee house and wine bar, which originated in the Dallas Design District, will open its second location by early 2016 adjacent to the Bank of America offices at the 200 Lobby fronting the motor court.
