Shake Shack will open Dec. 11 in the Central West End

The wait is almost over. Almost two years after The Scoop first reported Shake Shack was coming to St. Louis, the popular burger chain will debut at 32 N. Euclid Ave,. in the Central West End on Monday, Dec. 11.

St. Louis native Danny Meyer founded Shake Shack in New York City and has opened locations all over the world, but this will be the first in his hometown. The CWE location will include plenty of nods to St. Louis, along with standbys like smash burgers and crinkle fries. The Mound City Double cheeseburger features Provel cheese, Niman Ranch bacon and “STL Sauce.”

“I learned the meaning and feeling of genuine hospitality while growing up in St. Louis, a lesson that has shaped my life and guided my career,” Meyer said in a statement. “When I jotted down the first Shake Shack menu, it was my favorite childhood food memories that most inspired me, and I’m thrilled that Shake Shack has at last found a home in my hometown.”

There are also three local frozen custard concoctions: the Central West End Blend, made with vanilla custard, salted caramel sauce and Park Avenue Coffee gooey butter cake; the Chocolate Chip Cookie with chocolate custard, a chocolate chip cookie from Winslow’s Home, chunks of Askinosie dark chocolate and salted caramel sauce; and the Pie Oh My, vanilla custard with a slice of Pie Oh My! seasonal pie. Local beers from Urban Chestnut Brewing Co., 4 Hands Brewing Co. and Schlafly will also be available.

3. Taco turnover is in the works in the Central West End. Owner Chris Sommers announced that he will close doors for good at Gringo, but the space won’t sit idle for long. Co-owners and brothers Adam and Jason Tilford plan to open their third St. Louis location of Mission Taco Joint therein just two short months.

4. Many know Cugino’s Italian Bar & Grill for its extensive draft list, but soon the restaurant will host a new option in local beer. Narrow Gauge Brewing is scheduled to begin production early this spring, operating out of a space inside the Florissant restaurant.

The Scoop: Danny Meyer to open Shake Shack in St. Louis

Friday, February 12th, 2016

Get ready, burger lovers. NYC restaurateur and St. Louis native Danny Meyer is bringing Shake Shack to The Lou. Meyer announced today, Feb. 12, that he will open a location at 32 N. Euclid Ave., in the Central West End in 2017.

Shake Shack is well known on the East Coast for its Midwest-inspired griddle burgers, griddle hot dog and frozen concretes. Meyer, who owns internationally acclaimed Union Square Hospitality Group, operates dozens of Shake Shack locations across the East Coast, Chicago, Austin and Las Vegas, as well as a handful of international locations.

“As much as my heart has wanted to bring this home to St. Louis, there was no way to do it unless we could do it really, really well,” Meyer said. “We finally have the leadership team ready to go and the distribution capability for the fresh food to feel like we could bring St. Louis what it deserves.”

Meyer said each Shake Shack’s menu and space is unique to that location, and St. Louisans will see a Shake Shack not just tailored to the city, but to the Central West End. “It just so happens that this corner is a block from where I was born and half a block from where my father grew up and where my grandparents lived,” Meyer said. “It was screaming, ‘This is the one.’”

If the CWE location does well, Meyer said he hopes to bring more Shake Shacks to the St. Louis market. “Whenever we go to a new city, the goal is to believe that it … is embraced by the community and does really well,” he said, adding that it was far too early to plan for anything just yet.
