Tragedy Strikes, Reservations Edition: Balthazar and Shake Shack Are Closed For The Hurricane

Time to panic.

As noted by New York Times critic Sam Sifton, all Danny Meyer/Union Square Hospitality Group restaurants are shutting their doors for the hurricane. Yes, that includes Shake Shack. We also just heard from a Balthazar reservationist that all McNally restaurants will be closing after 5PM Saturday and for Sunday service.  People: This thing just got serious. Meanwhile, the Times’ Hurricane Tracker says it won’t be a hurricane by the time it reaches New Jersey. [FK]
