Get ready, ShackBurger fans.

Downtown’s much-anticipated Shake Shack opened this Wednesday in Battery Park City, the popular chain announced on Tuesday.

“We’re excited to have a location in this neighborhood,” said Jon Vandergrift, director of New York operations for Shake Shack, as workers put the finishing touches on the restaurant Tuesday morning. “It’s an up-and-coming area — we’re excited to be part of the redevelopment.”

The Battery Park City outpost, on Murray Street, features all the traditional menu items that made Shake Shack famous, including burgers dripping with the house-made ShackSauce, but it also offers three special “concretes,” or frozen custards, that can’t be found anywhere else.

The “Wall-nut Street” contains vanilla custard, cookie dough, walnuts and cherries; the “Lower West Side” has chocolate custard, malted marshmallow and cocoa nibs; and the “Downtown Butter Brown” serves up vanilla custard mixed with hazelnut brown butter streusel and seasonal fruit.

The North End Grill will open in late 2011 at North End Avenue and Murray Street.

Danny Meyer unveiled new details this week about his much-anticipated fine-dining restaurant in Battery Park City.

The North End Grill would serve new-American dishes with a focus on seafood when it opened at the end of this year in the former Embassy Suites building, Mayer’s Union Square Hospitality Group said.

Floyd Cardoz, founding chef at Tabla, will take the helm of the new restaurant, and Bentel & Bentel will design the interior.

Cardoz said in a statement that he planned to cook “simply prepared American food with ingredients that should remind you what day of the year it is.”

Meyer called Cardoz “one of the most gifted chefs with whom I have ever had the privilege to work.”

“North End Grill will be another shining chapter in Floyd’s career and I can’t wait to see and taste what’s next,” Meyer said in a statement.

The North End Grill, at the corner of North End Avenue and Murray Street, will join outposts of Meyer’s Shake Shack and Blue Smoke, also opening in the building later this year.
