The first Shake Shack on the West Coast is getting closer and closer to its opening day, hopefully next month, at New York-New York, and now the restaurant is teasing some of the only-in-Vegas items anticipated on the menu. Expect to find a Vegas-themed burger and a partnership with a local bakery for a one-of-a-kind Concrete, the ice cream treat Shake Shack serves.
The East Coast cult burger chain dives into the local burger wars with a 9,135-square-foot, patio-intensive space, costing an estimated $3,871,258 to construct. The restaurant takes over the former The Sporting House space, incorporating "lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council" and tabletops built from "reclaimed bowling alley lanes." Energy-efficient equipment will ensure "all electric usage will be offset through renewable energy credits."
