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

September 28, 2012

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)
