Shake Shack Is Opening in London Next Year

Pass the HP sauce, please.

ShackBurgers, SmokeStacks, concretes will all be available when Danny Meyer’s restaurant group opens its first U.K. location in mid-2013 inside the Market Building near the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. The historic neighborhood, which is also where Keith McNally is opening a clone of Balthazar next February, is popular with tourists and has a steady influx of foot traffic and, presumably, many lovers of frozen custard and American cheese.
