Black Tap, the American burger, shake and craft hops institution, first made its mark on Dubai’s foodie scene less than a year ago when kitchens were first fired up at Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel. The people of Dubai proved an appetite for authenticity, with crowds of diners lining up outside the restaurant every night for a taste (and an Instagram shot) of Black Tap’s signature ‘Crazy Shakes’. Now, Black Tap fanatics have another venue option when they need their fix, with the second branch opening at the beginning of this year at the Rixos Premium JBR.
The restaurant, which pays homage to the great American traditions, first revolutionized the New York burger and shake scene before turning its sights on Dubai.
Chef Joe Isidori, the mastermind behind Black Tap, commented, ‘I am really humbled that Dubai appreciates our unique offering of traditional and innovative burgers, craft hops and crazy shakes on such an enthusiastic level. The reaction has been so positive and to be opening our second venue in less than a year is beyond exciting. Watch this space.’
