World famous burgers set to hit East Garden City this weekend.
The Gallery at Westbury Plaza will get a much-anticipated addition Saturday as the Manhattan born Shake Shack will open its first doors on Long Island.
Shake Shack, the brainchild of renown restaurateur Danny Meyer, will open its doors at 11 a.m. Saturday.
Born in New York City’s Madison Square Park in 2004, Shake Shack is known the
world-over for its all-natural burgers, flat-top dogs, frozen custard,
beer, wine and more.
“Ever since opening Union Square Cafe in 1985, we’ve welcomed guests
from all over Long Island to our USHG restaurants in NYC. Our friends
from out east have become some of our most loyal and ardent fans,” Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti said in a release. “We are thrilled to finally bring a Shack closer to our Long Island guests, at the crossroads of Nassau County.”
The Westbury Shake Shack is a true “roadside” burger stand that features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, creating a bright, open feel.
