NEW ORLEANS – Shake Shack restaurant announced that its second New Orleans area location will open on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the corner of Canal and North Peters streets (inside Canal Place, 333 Canal Street). This will be the flagship for the New Orleans area.

The 3,411-square-foot Shack will have ample seating for guests. In keeping with Shake Shack’s commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction, the Canal Place Shack will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials. Booths will be made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and table tops will be made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes.
