The Chinese version of Shake Shack is coming to America.

Uncle Sam’s, which is based in Beijing, plans to open a restaurant on May 18 near the Empire State Building in New York City, reports Katie Little at CNBC.

The menu was “crafted by a consulting team led by a James Beard Award-winning chef,” Little writes.
