Hey, New York! Shake Shack is Not Making French-Dip Burgers For You!
ORIGINAL STORY BY CHRIS CRAWLY on GRUBSTREET.COM
As Shake Shack expands into more cities across the country, it’s started creating tribute burgers as a way to ingratiate itself with the locals and maintain that little-guy luster. For its Austin arrival, the chain debuted the Lockhart Link, made with jalapeño-cheese sausages from barbecue icon Kreuz Market. Now, for its big Los Angeles splash, it’s unveiling a brand-new, exclusive creation: the Roadside Double, which culinary director Mark Rosati says is inspired by the French dip at Los Angeles institutions Cole’s and Phillipe.
