Danny Meyer, the founder of the New York-based fast-food chain, Shake Shack, is no stranger to Michelin stars. The legendary restaurateur and longtime CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group has earned the honor numerous times with Gramercy Tavern, the Modern, and Eleven Madison Park holding one, two, and three stars, respectively.
While it might be a cold day in hell before the Michelin Guide awards a coveted star to a fast-food joint, Shake Shack might have just gotten one step closer to the world of fine dining—at least in Japan.
In honor of the one-year anniversary of Shake Shack’s Tokyo location, Meyer’s beloved burger chain will be adding their own “Michelin-starred” item to the menu for one day only, according to Highsnobiety.
Aptly titled the “Den Shack,” the burger was created by Zaiyu Hasegawa, the two-Michelin-starred chef behind Jimbocho Den in Tokyo’s Chiyoda ward. The burger features a traditional, all-beef Angus patty, along with bacon, marinated cucumbers, and red miso.
Unfortunately for burger-lovers stateside, the Den Shack will be available on November 3—and only November 3—at Shake Shack Tokyo, costing Japanese customers ¥930 JPY, or roughly $9 USD.
But hey, maybe it’s only a matter of time until we get a Massimo Bottura ShackBurger, or an Eric Ripert Chick’n Shack. We can dream, can’t we?
