Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

The expansion-minded folks at Shake Shack are moving ahead with their world domination plans with a new location in Moscow. Shake Shack reps tell Eater that there's "no set date, but we are planning for this winter." The Moscow Shake Shack will be located on Arbat Street in the city's center. The Moscow Times reports the location will be operated by a "newly established" company called Delicus and that job postings have hinted at a November opening. The Moscow location's website is already live.

This isn't the first international expansion for the burger chain; they already have locations open in London, Istanbul, Dubai, and other cities in the Middle East. Opening in Russia is a surprising choice, considering the current scandal surrounding the country's laws regarding homosexuality. Stoli has been getting the boycott treatment from US customers; is Shake Shack opening itself up to the same?
