Here's an early look at Black Seed, the new wood-fired bagel shop from Noah Bernamoff of Mile End and Matt Kliegman of The Smile. The little shop turns out hand-rolled, hand-boiled bagels that are a cross between Montreal style bagels and classic New York ones. Toppings include house-made cream cheese, Tobiko caviar spread, whitefish salad, and beet-cured lox, and the menu includes salad toppings and the option of a bacon, egg, and cheese. The shop opens on Wednesday, and while for now it will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Bernamoff and Kliegman tell Grub Street that it will eventually be open 24 hours a day. A second location will open early next month in Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place.
