Black Seed Bagels

NEW YORK, NY – The freshest bagel joint in the city  — Black Seed Bagels — is located in Nolita. The bagel making enterprise opened shop in April with people lining up down the block to gain entry. When we visited in May to shoot the location for Epicurious (see Reinventing the Wheel: The Black Seed Bagels Story), there was a handwritten sign on the door rationing the remaining supply for the day (no more than three bagels per person). Chef Dianna Daoheung rolled with having photographers over her shoulder for preparation, so Epicurious could provide a neat guide and recipe to making your own Black Seed-style bagel at home.
