The Point Reyes National Seashore announced this weekend that the new Point Reyes lighthouse restoration will include a Shake Shack restaurant. In an effort to expand revenue streams for the park and provide more food options for visitors, the park cut a deal with the extremely popular fast food company after months of negotiations. The location will be down at the point right next to the lighthouse and will become the crown jewel of the Shake Shack westward expansion.
"We couldn't be more pleased," announced a park spokesperson, "the lighthouse is the most visited spot in the park and now we've teamed up with one of the most popular food establishments in the country. Imagine how incredible it will be to hike down the stairs to our newly renovated lighthouse and be able to enjoy an amazing chocolate shake and a tasty hamburger with one of the greatest views in the world."
The menu at the Shake Shack will be very similar to other locations around the country, including the newly opened location in Larkspur. Because of the uniqueness of this location, there will however be daily specials suited to the region like deep fried oysters, organic elephant seal shakes and free range elk burgers, all locally sourced. "We're still working out the details," the park spokesperson said, "but once we get it all sorted, it will be a big win win for everyone."
Access from parking lot to the observation deck and the Shake Shack will be ready by late May/early June.
