Shake Shack now open at the Mosaic District

Fairfax County’s second Shake Shack is now open and serving customers.

Known for its burgers and milkshakes, the chain quietly opened the doors of its new Mosaic District restaurant on April 18, store manager Tasha told FFXnow.

However, the site is currently operating only from 5 to 9 p.m., according to the Mosaic District website.

“Just some store issues,” Tasha said when asked about the limited hours. “We’ve got to get some things figured out still.”

The restaurant doesn’t yet have a clear timeline for when hours will expand, she added.

Shake Shack is located in the 4,000-square-foot space at 2911 District Avenue that previously belonged to the fast-casual Indian joint Choolah. It has several tables and chairs on a 668-square-foot outdoor patio.

Originating as a hot dog cart in New York City, Shake Shack now has over 200 locations nationwide, but the Merrifield site represents its first expansion in Fairfax County since opening at Tysons Corner Center in 2014.

“It’s been good so far since we opened,” Tasha said. “We wanted to be part of a good community. We wanted to be part of a family-oriented community, and that’s what we did.”

While no other plans in the county have been officially confirmed, the company will reportedly be the tenant for an upcoming drive-thru facility at Pike 7 Plaza in Tysons.

Elsewhere in the Mosaic District, Sunglass Hut has opened next to the MacMillan Whisky Room, and a Pressed juice shop is expected to arrive this month. Work is underway on a new, bigger space for Jinya Ramen Bar, which will relocate to make way for the Middle Eastern restaurant Tawle this summer.

For those who miss Choolah, the Indian eatery RASA will open its first location in the county adjacent to Mosaic’s Target. The restaurant applied for beer/wine and mixed beverage licenses on April 21, according to Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority records.
