SHAKE SHACK COMING SOON ... The burger darling of the East Coast plans to open its first Northern California location this fall at Stanford Shopping Center. Shake Shack is bringing its all-natural Angus beef burgers, flat-top hot dogs, crinkle-cut fries and frozen custard. There also will be "exclusive" menu items that will be developed in collaboration with local purveyors, said Kristyn Clark, the company's senior manager of brand communications. The Peninsula location is the first in the chain's Bay Area expansion, with plans to open in Marin County and San Francisco's Marina district. "It is with great respect and humility that we enter that landscape, deepen our West Coast roots and bring a new community gathering place to this iconic city after so many years," company CEO Randy Garutti said in a press release issued Tuesday. Shake Shack, often described as In-N-Out's East Coast competition, started as a hot dog cart in New York City in 2004.

Glad to have the Shake Shack here. It is part of the Union Square Hospitality Group which has many popular restaurants in New York. Danny Meyer's book "Setting the Table - The Transforming Power of Hospitality in Business" is a great read and prompter for people who are trying to set up in the restaurant business. What works, what does not work.
