Coming soon to arena neighborhood: Tony Roma's and Shake Shack

As the Brooklyn Eagle headlines: "to hell with the diet!"

The newspaper reports that both Tony Roma's and Shake Shack should be open by the spring, when hopefully the Nets will still be playing across the street at Barclays Center.

Tony Roma's is expected to open in two weeks, on December 10 on the ground floor of Atlantic Terrace, the apartment building at 673 Atlantic, around back of the arena.

The Menexas brothers, owners of the local Tony Roma's, have already hired 200 people, mostly local, for the restaurant.

Shake Shack will be open in spring, its owners hope, at 170 Flatbush, previously the site of a furniture store. "Being located directly across from Barclays Center will be very exciting for us, as it plants us firmly within walking distance to several great neighborhoods from Park Slope to Fort Greene," said Greg Waters, a spokesman for Shake Shack.

In addition, the Eagle quoted the landlord at the building saying a ""very successful Manhattan restaurateur" could be Shake Shack's new neighbor.

Still waiting for a new tenant is the former Triangle Sports store at 182 Flatbush. Hooters wanted to open in the building but the owner declined to rent to them after local protests.  The Eagle also reports that the the Berger Tile site, slated for residential and commercial uses, will be demolished. That will mean a lot of construction activity near the arena's entrance at Dean Street and Sixth Avenue. B2, the 33-story apartment building at the arena's southeast corner, should be rising soon.
