The Shake Shack in Downtown Brooklyn will go to court to keep its sidewalk café.

The restaurant at Fulton Street and Brooklyn Bridge Boulevard opened in 2011 and has an expansive sidewalk café with glass walls, according to the New York Post. However, the company has argued in a lawsuit that its landlord Allied Property Group, owned by Michael Chera, took away its permission for the area and has not provided them a reason why.

Court papers maintain that approval from the city for the space lapsed due to a clerical error by Shake Shack.

The popular burger joint founded by Danny Meyer decided this fall to move its offices to the West Village from Union Square after inking a 15-year lease at 225 Varick Street for 39,000 square feet. The restaurant also plans to open a location this year on Staten Island at BFC Partners’ Empire Outlets. [NYP]Eddie Small
