The renowned Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer premiered their 4th New York location opening on November 17, 2016. The restaurant of award-winning burgers and Instagram-worthy shakes will open at the Blakely New York in Midtown. Chef and Owners Joe Isidori and Chris Barish are excited to bring the new Black Tap location to the residents and visitors of Midtown.
Guests attending the pre-opening were continuously served house cocktails, savory appetizers, and Black Tap’s famous burgers and milkshakes. Friendly staff members encouraged guests to try everything, sharing personal favorites from the menu and offering suggestions. Classics, such as the “All-American Burger” and the “Greg Norman Burger”, will grace Midtown’s menu along with brand-new specials: the “Crispy Chicken Sandwich” and the “Vegan Burger”.
A full house was accommodated by the 90-seat Black Tap Midtown. With three dining sections, guests are given the option of booth, window, or bar seating. Black Tap serves as a modern twist to the traditional American diner theme. The décor within the restaurant utilizes metals and wood to create an edgier atmosphere. Black Tap’s menu incorporates a similar edge with added ingredients and unique names to individualize their menu.
Known for having die-hard fans forming lines that stretch around the block, Black Tap’s milkshakes are unlike any other. Isidori created the midtown location’s beverage program including shake specialties Cotton Candy, Sweet N’ Salty, Cookie Shake, Brooklyn Blackout, and Sour Power. Traditional flavors such as Nutella, Oreo Cookies & Cream, and Peanut Butter are also included on the menu. Black Tap Midtown will offer a full bar with over twenty beers, frozen daiquiris, and a full cocktail list.
Owners, Isidori and Barish, are excited for the opening of Black Tap Midtown and welcome everyone to enjoy their specialties. The team has big plans for 2017 with more New York openings and their first international opening of Black Tap in Dubai. In the meantime, stop by the midtown location and get your grub on.
