I tweeted Beirut City Centre asking them why Shake Shack didn’t open yet (Knowing that it was due to open in July) and I got the above answer. The Cheese Cake Factory is not open yet and from what I heard but can’t confirm, might not open before the end of the year.

I am not sure if it’s the bad situation that is causing these delays but I would have done the same given the critical phase Lebanon and the whole region are going through.
