Earlier today, an Eater tipster spotted Danny Meyer in Battery Park City (Goldman Sachs has been said to be negotiating to bring a Shake Shack to its headquarters there). Now a reliable tipster tells us that it’s a done deal, and BPC is also getting a Blue Smoke. Asked for comment, Union Square Hospitality gave us a statement similar to the one they issued when we last asked about this.

As you may be aware, we have openly expressed our intention to expand some of our businesses. As such, rumors often circulate about potential openings in different neighborhoods across the city. We have decided not to comment on any of these rumors until we have something concrete to share.

Meanwhile, there’s still no exact day set for the imminently opening theater district location of Shake Shack, but we’re told the Upper East Side location will open late this month.
