Owner of ‘Slutty Vegan’ Partners With Shake Shack for Naughty Plant-Based Menu
By: Kelton Brooks
The most original food menu a person can find is based in Atlanta’s Slutty Vegan restaurant. You can slide in for the “One Night Stand,” get your freak on with the “Fussy Hussy” or if you want to stay loyal, how about the “Main Chik”?
“No meat? No problem! You’ve never tasted a burger this Slutty” is how Slutty Vegan owner Pinky Cole advertises her plant-based food and famous burgers.
The award-winning chef and entrepreneur is now taking her talents home to score big in New York during Harlem Week through a philanthropic partnership with Shake Shack.
“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Shake Shack to serve the Harlem community,” she told The New York Daily News on Friday. “My first restaurant business was in Harlem, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. We can’t wait to give our Harlem neighbors a slutty plant-based option with Shake Shack and bring some Atlanta vibes to NYC!”
The all-vegan everything restaurant is a popular place which no one can stop talking about.

The 33-year-old returns to Harlem, where she opened her first restaurant in 2014.
Cole will work closely with the Shake Shack on 125th St. in Harlem, where it will feature the limited-time “SluttyShack” entrée. The burger consists of a veggie patty topped with Pinky’s secret “Slut Dust,” lemon ginger kale, caramelized onions, vegan ranch and vegan mayo on Slutty Vegan’s signature toasted Hawaiian bun.
“We’ve been long-time admirers of Pinky Cole and wanted to create a sandwich with her that celebrates the beauty and simplicity of real vegetables, while also being craveable and delicious to eat,” Shake Shack culinary director Mark Rosati told The Daily News. “The SluttyShack brings together Shake Shack and Slutty Vegan in a special way … and is nothing short of inspiring, as well as very meaningful, as we’re giving back to local nonprofits helping those in the restaurant community.”
