Black Tap is ALL That.

Black Tap. Is it expensive? Yes. Is it totally over the top? Yes. Will your kids go flipping bananas if you take them there? Yes. So go once and get it over with. We took the kids for shakes and we split a burger. The kids were so excited to try it that it made it worth the trip to the city, the wait in line and the $15 for the shakes.

These shakes are architectural works of art. They look like something from a Dr. Seuss book; they are large, colorful and, well, teetering. We had one Cotton Candy Shake: a strawberry shake topped with Cotton Candy, clumps of rock sugar and pink & pearl candy balls adhered with frosting–enough to send your kid into a diabetic shock except there’s probably no way for any kid to ever finish it). The Sweet & Salty has chocolate pieces & peanut butter cups adhered with chocolate frosting on the rim and is topped with a sugar daddy, pretzel rods, chocolate covered pretzel, whipped cream & chocolate drizzles. And lastly, the Brooklyn which is all things chocolate. The burger was pretty darn good too! ($15-18)

3 locations: Black Tap: 529 Broome Street, 248 West 14th or 136 West 56th Street.
