Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and flat-top Vienna beef dogs (no added hormones and no antibiotics ever), 100% all-natural cage-free chicken (no antibiotics ever), spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.
The Darien Shack will be spinning up an exclusive frozen custard concrete, the Darien Cookie Dough (vanilla frozen custard, salted caramel sauce, SoNo Baking Company ginger chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate toffee), in addition to Minted Magic (chocolate frozen custard, Chocopologie mint white chocolate ganache, chocolate truffle cookie dough and chocolate sprinkles) and Pie Oh My (vanilla frozen custard and slice of SoNo Baking Company seasonal pie).
As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good®, the Darien Shack will donate five percent of sales from the Pie Oh My concrete to support The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a nonprofit dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families, free of charge.
Guests can quench their thirst with a selection of local craft beer from Two Roads Brewing Company and Half Full Brewery, in addition to the Shack-exclusive ShackMeister Ale from Brooklyn Brewery. Wine lovers can sip on Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.
