Customers will be able to place takeaway orders in the restaurants themselves, or order food for home delivery through Deliveroo.
Like many food outlets, Shake Shack was forced to close in mid-March after the government told cafes and restaurants to stop trading.
It initially tried to offer a takeaway and delivery model, but closed entirely on March 24.
The company, which is known for its burgers, crinkly fries and milkshakes, said it has now introduced social distancing measures designed to keep staff and customers safe.
These include face masks for all employees, floor markers, contactless pick-up and delivery, and allocated pick-up zones for delivery riders.
Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal
BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.
But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?
The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers. The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.
We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.
The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM. No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here: www.thesun.co.uk/whocareswinsappeal.
Shake Shack has promised that when it reopens it will deliver 1,000 free meals to NHS hospitals.
And if you order a burger and you work for the emergency services, or if you are a social and community care worker, you will get another burger free.
The offer is available for takeaway after providing an ID or employer letter.
The opening hours for the Tottenham Court Road and Canary Wharf restaurants will be 11.30am to 10pm.
A number of other restaurants have begun to reopen in the UK, including Greggs, which is opening a small number of branches as a trial.
McDonalds has also hinted that it may reopen next month for drive-through and delivery.
And Costa has reopened four branches for takeaway and delivery.
