Danny Meyer's future in politics



At the Post, Jennifer Gould Keil conducts a Q-and-A with restaurateur Danny Meyer... Blah, blah, blah... and he doesn't really answer this question ... that I'd love to honestly hear him answer...

Q: What happened in Nolita? You were going to build a Shake Shack in a parking lot and backed off when some neighbors complained. Why?

A: One of the good things about the experience is that there will not be an unlimited number of Shake Shacks in New York and life is too short. That's the bottom line. We are going to open our first Shake Shack in Miami in late spring, before it gets too hot. And there will be others opening on the Upper East Side and in the theater district soon. There's also one in Central Park, at the Delacorte Theater.


So life is too short is what happened? Or maybe it had something to do with this resident...

These guys just love malling New York. The B&T crowd feel right at home.

Indeed, Curt. And they also want what Jeremiah Moss calls The Joneses to feel comfortable here in the city...people who want to maintain the familiar suburban mores...

Seriously...(?)
