Perhaps because we’re not getting enough variety with the influx of Sonic, Fatburger, and Hardee’s, the Denver-based chain Smashburger will open its first Manhattan location early next year, at 136 William Street. The chain was angling for three spots in Brooklyn alone when it first opened there in 2011, but sometimes even “America’s Most Promising Company” gets sidetracked. As if to make up for all that, the chain was just approved for a beer and wine license in the Financial District. [DNAInfo, Earlier, Related]
