Just when we were starting to get annoyed at the fact that Manhattan has lately had an abundance of cultishly popular sandwiches, while Brooklyn has had exactly none, Shack Shack announced this morning that, starting today, they would be launching their first ever chicken sandwich. And guess what? It’s only available at the store’s Brooklyn locations. Suck it, Fuku.
The ChickenShack, available exclusively at Shake Shack’s Kings County locales—409 Fulton Street, in Downtown Brooklyn; 1 Old Fulton Street, in Dumbo; and 170 Flatbush Avenue, near the Barclays Center—is made from a “crispy, all-natural and antibiotic-free chicken breast” and will be topped only with pickles, lettuce, and a swipe of buttermilk herb mayo. And it sure looks damned good.
The ChickenShack is available starting today, 7/7, but will only be around for an enigmatic “limited time.” So, you know, we don’t know about you, but we’ve never been so happy to work in Downtown Brooklyn in our lives. We really haven’t.
