Just over a month after opening its first Boston-area restaurant in Chestnut Hill, New York City burger chain Shake Shack it is seeking to open in Harvard Square.

After first opening in New York, Shake Shack now has restaurants in Washington D.C. and Philadelphia and opened at the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center in March.

The company is seeking approval to construct a first floor vestibule entrance at the Galeria and the Cambridge Historical Commission and Harvard Square Conservation District will hold a hearing on the proposal Thursday, May 2, at 6 p.m. in the senior center at 806 Massachusetts Avenue.

Shake Shack will also go before the Board of Zoning Appeal on May 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the senior center seeking a special permit to open a fast food restaurant at the location.
