Smashburger Sets Its Sights on Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, Et Al


We’ve known for a few months that Smashburger has set its sights on Brooklyn, but now Metromix has a few more details about the Denver-based burger chain’s intentions.

In an interview with the site, Jim Denburg, the guy who intends to bring the chain to Brooklyn, said he’s planning to open three locations and hoping for an April launch. So far he has his sights on Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Fort Greene, and the Atlantic Yards area. Denburg also expressed some tentative interest in using produce from some of the borough’s rooftop farms, and apparently feels no remorse about the closure of the Gage & Tollner Arby’s.
