Yup, Shake Shack's Coming To Coral Gables

New, 3 comments

A day after the NYT magazine article came out in which Danny Meyer talked about scouting a Coral Gables location, we receive official word that Shake Shack is indeed moving into the space currently known as Smoke't at 1450 South Dixie Highway. Opening in the second half of 2012, the University of Miami Shake Shack will be decidedly different from the Lincoln Road one. "'Here the clientele would be undergrads. 'Should have a lot of TVs, and ultra-cool music so the students come over,'" Meyer's partner David Swinghamer said in the article. "'This is an alternative to going to a bar.”“You’d want some neon that said something about ice-cold beer,' Meyer said." Or, just a sign that says Shake Shack. Perhaps the Five Guys located up the street at 1540 S. Dixie will bake them a nice peanutty welcome cake. [EaterWire]
