Shake Shack is eyeing a space at Grand Central Terminal, a spokesperson told DNAinfo, and has filed its application with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

“As we expand Shake Shack we are looking to make our home in vibrant locations throughout New York City and beyond,” the spokesperson said. “We are interested in exploring the idea of bringing a Shake Shack to Grand Central, and have responded to the MTA’s [request for proposals].”

Shake Shack is reportedly interested specifically in the Zocalo restaurant space on the Lower Level Dining Concourse, according to Gothamist.

Getting approval may not be easy. It was reported yesterday that the MTA has a strict process for approving whatever companies apply for space in the transit hub. According to the New York Times, the agency can be a difficult landlord as it doesn’t display any loyalty to tenants whose leases expire — current tenants must reapply in a manner similar to any prospective tenants — and insists on the right to approve materials, design plans and colors that shop owners use. [DNAinfo]
