Get ready to chow down, Beantown! Shake Shack has teamed up with celebrated Boston chefs Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer to create the Coppa Burger, a limited edition burger named after and inspired by their award-winning Italian restaurant in Boston’s South End.
The Coppa Burger ($6.89) is a 100% all-natural Angus beef hamburger topped with provolone cheese, griddled mortadella, cherry peppers, caramelized onions, mayo and shredded lettuce. The limited edition burger will be available from Tuesday, August 16th to Sunday, August 21st, 2016 at all five Massachusetts locations: Boston Seaport (77 Seaport Blvd, Boston); Chestnut Hill (49 Boylston Street, Chestnut Hill); Dedham (226 Legacy Place, Dedham); Harvard Square (92 Winthrop Street, Cambridge); and Newbury Street (234 Newbury Street, Boston).
While Shake Shack has collaborated with reputable chefs across the country, including Daniel Humm, April Bloomfield and David Chang, this is Shake Shack’s first chef-driven burger collaboration in Massachusetts.
As Chefs and Co-Owners of Coppa, Toro and the recently opened Little Donkey, Bissonnette and Oringer have each respectively been named “Best Chef Northeast” by the James Beard Foundation and created two of Boston’s most loved dining destinations.
“Jamie and Ken are legends in Boston and beyond, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be collaborating with them,” said Mark Rosati, Shake Shack’s Culinary Director. “The Coppa Burger harnesses everything that’s fun and unique about their approach to cooking, all on a classic Shake Shack burger.”
Bissonnette adds, “We’re excited for this collaboration. We approached the burger with the flavors we love – a classic Italian American grinder – in mind. Shake Shack burgers offer a great foundation to create something killer!
