BLACK SEED poppy-seed bagel with scallion cream cheese cucumber watermelon radish capers


Black Seed, the buzzy bagel shop from Noah Bernamoff (Mile End) and Matt Kliegman (The Smile), debuted in Soho last week, garnering hour-long waits for their Montreal-meets-Gotham rounds—we even spotted Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in line for a lox-and-schmear on opening day. The turnout was so great that the wood-paneled joint had to close on Monday, April 28 due to the overwhelming demand, with the staff returning fresh-faced on Tuesday to roll out even more of their bagel beauts. Haven’t made it in to try the ambitious house-made spreads and abundantly seeded, wood-fired rings? Our food-porny slideshow will change that real quick. Check out the full menu below:
