Danny Meyer’s folks send word that the Shake Shack is opening its Dupont Circle, D.C., location today at 1216 18th Street NW and Connecticut. (This summer, a second D.C. location will open in Nationals Park.) Site-specific concretes include “Presidential Sweet (vanilla custard, peanut butter sauce, marshmallow, Michel Cluizel caramel milk chocolate chunks), Majority Whip (vanilla custard, crepe crispies, seasonal fruit and whipped cream) and Washington Monu-Mint (chocolate custard, minted marshmallow and chocolate cookie dough).” The release also informs that, back in Manhattan, the Shack’s “Lower West Side” location will open June 2011 and the downtown Brooklyn location is on for fall. In other news, there’s apparently a “Lower West Side” of Manhattan.
