In collaboration with Luke's Lobster, Black Seed Bagels has introduced a limited-edition bagel sandwich that is made with lobster cream cheese, which will go on to become a permanent offering at the bagel shop. The elevated bagel sandwich pairs the tarragon lobster cream cheese with a Maine lobster knuckle and claw meat, plus celery salad. When working together to develop this sandwich, Luke's Lobster and Black Seed Bagels were going for a taste that would be simultaneously "tart, briny and crunchy."
This isn't the first time a specialty cream cheese from a collaboration has been added to Black Seed Bagels' menu—it currently also offers a black truffle cream cheese, which was created with Eleven Madison Park.
A growing interest in fermented foods, probiotics and avoiding the consumption of sugar has generated new interest in briny foods and beverages.
