Danny Meyer Concepts Oust Five Guys From Nationals Park

If you were as curious as franchise owner Charley Beresford was as to why Nationals Park didn't offer his popular Five Guys concession stand a new contract, the mystery has been solved: Tom Sietsema reports today that New York restaurateur Danny Meyer is bringing Shake Shack to the ballpark instead. And that's not all — Meyer will open three other concessions, too, including Blue Smoke's barbecue, fries from Box Frites and El Verano Taqueria's tacos. A ballpark rep explains that they made the switch to "re-inspire the fan experience.”

The new concessions won't be ready in time for the season opener, but probably by June — at which point the new Shake Shake location in Dupont Circle should be open, too. A location which happens to be down the street from a Five Guys.
