The two blew up around the same time last winter, with Black Tap's giant milkshakes still commanding nearly two-hour waits at all times of day and the Rainbow Bagel showing no signs of ceding its status as Instagram's most coveted breakfast food.
But Black Tap's burgers are pretty decent, too, and Scott Rossillo has been hand-rolling all kinds of bagels for over 20 years in Brooklyn. This weekend, they're teaming up for a collaboration Bagel Burger for the brunch of your psychedelic dreams: a Pat LaFreida beef patty with bacon, eggs, cheese and truffle mayo on a black-and-white swirled truffle oil bagel.
The Bagel Burger is $19 (it also comes with a side of homemade fries) and only available Sept. 10 and 11 in very limited quantities: 50 per day at Black Tap Meatpacking, and just 25 per day at Black Tap SoHo. Remember to factor in brunch now starting at 8 a.m. when setting your alarm.
