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:
