Woman Sues Burger Chain Over Chairs

shake-shack-burgers, the beloved East Coast burger and custard chain, is being sued. The lawsuit doesn’t concern the quality of the restaurant’s food or service, but its interior décor.

Cindy Cirlin filed a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit last week after being allegedly attacked by a dog that was chained to one of the Upper East Side outposts’ chairs. According to court papers, Shake Shack “was negligent in its failure to protect [Cirlin] from the anticipated dangers of allowing dogs to be attached by leashes to its flimsy and unanchored chairs.”

The 86th Street location features a large garden plaza and lightweight, portable chairs. All locations are canine-friendly, offering dog biscuits as items on their regular menu.

Cirlin’s charges add to Shake Shack’s legal troubles this year — the restaurant was sued in July by a small business owner Robert Shapiro for bidding to open a location in the Grand Central terminal.
