The week before last, Miami. This week, Boston? The Boston Herald has gotten wind of possible plans for a Shake Shack outpost on Boston Common. Apparently Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group has submitted a proposal to open its fifth national location in a former “men’s comfort station” on the Common. The other contender for the space, Jeffrey Mills, also has ties to Manhattan: He ran the now-defunct Biltmore Room. Time will tell if Bostonians are as receptive to New York burgers as New Yorkers have of late been to lobster rolls.
