Last Sunday marked the opening of Danny Meyer’s third Shake Shack location in Kings County. The Shack is located at 170 Flatbush Avenue near the Barclays Center and is in walking distance of several neighborhoods such as Fort Greene and Park Slope. It is also easily accessible by public transportation using the subway lines at the Atlantic Avenue station which is directly across the street. What will be known as the Flatbush Shack will be serving all the classics, but will also be serving a location-specific custard called ‘Nothin’ But NETS,’ as a tribute to the Brooklyn Nets. The custard consists of a chocolate and vanilla custard mix with marshmallow sauce, chocolate sprinkles and crunchy bits.
The Fudge-eddaboutit custard, which originated at the Downtown Brooklyn Shack location consists of a blend of chocolate custard, chocolate sauce, baked chocolate cloud cookie and Brooklyn Mast Brothers dark chocolate chunks topped with chocolate sprinkles and will also be featured at this new outpost. The Brooklyn Pie oh My custard ( featuring vanilla custard blended with a slice of seasonal pie from Four & Twenty Blackbirds) from the DUMBO location will also be served at the Flatbush Shack.
The Flatbush location will donate 5% of sales from the Brooklyn Pie oh My concrete to STOKED as part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good. STOKED is a mentoring program based in Brooklyn that teaches life skills through action sports in order to accelerate youth development. The Flatbush Shack is also keeping with Shake Shack’s commitment to the environment as it is constructed with sustainable and recycled materials as well as using features such as energy-efficient kitchen lighting and equipment. The Shack’s tabletops are made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes from CounterEvolution bowling alley in Brooklyn.
