Danny Meyer Says Rising Meat Prices Won’t Affect Our ShackBurgers


“I think I would eat my hand if it had bacon on it,” restaurateur and man of the hour Danny Meyer told CNBC this morning, in an attempt to understand the impending, unavoidable, and inevitable bacon shortage of doom. The upshot is that, basically, Danny’s not scared of hiccups in the commodities market.
