The popular eatery announced today it has plans to sling burgers, fries and shakes at 1400 14th St. NW. The new location “will be right in the heart of the city, steps from historic Logan Circle,” according to a press release.
The forthcoming restaurant will also have a large outdoor seating area with picnic tables and plants, the release notes. Inside, the eatery will feature a “ceiling that is inspired by the distinctive street grid that radiates from the nation’s capital.”
If all goes according to plan, the Shake Shack would open in 2017.
More information from the press release:
The people have spoken: we’re proud to announce that we’re deepening our D.C. roots in 2017. Joining our D.C., MD and VA Shacks, the 14th Street Shack will be located at 1400 14th Street NW. The Shack will be right in the heart of the city, steps from historic Logan Circle.
Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and flat-top Vienna beef dogs (no added hormones and no antibiotics ever), 100% all-natural cage-free chicken (no antibiotics ever), spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.
Shake Shack is excited to grow our DMV-area community, first opened in 2011 in Dupont Circle, and has since grown to include F Street, Union Station, Inner Harbor, Tysons Corner, Pentagon City and Nationals Park. The 14th Street Shack will be a new spot for our D.C. friends to kick back and enjoy a ShackBurger. The Shack will feature a large outdoor seating area, complete with picnic tables and greenery.
As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good, the menu will feature all the Shack classics, as well as select frozen custard concretes featuring local purveyors. The 14th Street Shack features a ceiling that is inspired by the distinctive street grid that radiates from the nation’s capital. Like all locations, will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials. Booths will be made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and tabletops will be made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes from New York-based CounterEvolution.
