Rainbow Bagels and Crazy Milkshakes: What Happens When a Dish Goes Viral
As social media turns food into overnight sensations, restaurant operators who hit the jackpot struggle to keep up

Just a few weeks before Brooklyn succumbed to bagel mania, a similar sensation gripped Manhattan. “New York City is going insane over these next-level milkshakes,” the January 18 BuzzFeed article announced, referring to elaborate shakes at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer that are piled high with stuff like real cotton candy, caramel apples on sticks, or even an entire slice of cake, balanced atop scoops of ice cream. They appeared on the menu at Black Tap’s two locations last fall. Executive chef Joe Isidori still remembers standing by the bar when he took the phone call from The Today Show. They told him about the BuzzFeed piece, which had just been posted. He hung up the phone and one of his staffers approached him: “Chef, we got a four-hour wait.”
