First things first: Shake Shack Inc. is not rolling out a new breakfast sandwich at this time.

The burger chain recently made news not for new menu items, but for the promise of burger delivery to couches nationwide via a deal with GrubHub Inc. Still, at its year-old innovation kitchen in the basement of the company’s corporate headquarters in New York’s West Village, there is nonstop experimentation. From that space, culinary director Mark Rosati has created such dishes as the Chick’n Parm, with pancetta-tomato and Parmesan cheese sauces, as well as the company’s first dry-aged burger, with semi-soft cheese, pickled onions, and brown butter-pickled shallot mayo.
