First, it came for Chestnut Hill. Just yesterday, it officially launched in Harvard Square. Next, NYC-based burger-and-shake chain Shake Shack will muscle into Boston proper, opening a 5,000-square-foot Newbury St. location "later this year," according to the Boston Business Journal. The address, 234-236 Newbury St., falls between Fairfield and Exeter St. in Back Bay, a retail-heavy strip. Nearby restaurants include a Boloco location, Piattini, and Daisy Buchanan's.
UPDATE: Shake Shack is aiming to open the new location in "late 2014," confirms a rep for the chain.
