Two iconic New York Restaurants join forces for the first time to kick off 2017 with the ultimate one-two punch (In sandwich form)!
This January, brace yourself for the most anticipated collaboration of the year, as two culinary powerhouses come together to create a total knock-out of a fried chicken sandwich: the Black and Blue, brought to you by Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken and NYC favorite Black Tap, known for their craft burgers and outrageous milkshakes that have become viral sensations. The first of Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken’s monthly sandwich series for 2017, the Black and Blue, coats Blue Ribbon’s fried chicken, this time buttermilk-dredged and, twice-breaded, in their housemade spicy oil, Nashville style, adds pickled cucumbers, and lays it all between two toasted buns slathered in Black Tap’s signature buttermilk-dill dressing. “You couldn’t ask for a better combination,” said Joe Isidori, the Michelin-starred chef/owner of Black Tap. “Blue Ribbon’s hot chicken with our buttermilk-dill dressing is an unforgettable mix of flavors – you’ve got to try it for yourself!”
Bite into this thrilling collaborative sandwich at both NYC and Las Vegas locations of Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken, throughout the month of January. The Black & Blue sandwich will also be available at all Black Tap locations for a limited time from January 2022, 2017.
