If you're in touch with your inner foodie, then you know that Black Tap, in New York City, is the end-all, be-all of extravagant desserts.
But if you didn't know, just imagine heaven filled with juicy burgers, steak fries and -- most importantly -- filled to the brink with their famous milkshakes.
The owner of the shop, Joe Isidori, once worked for Donald Trump (apparently, POTUS loves milkshakes) right out of culinary school. And now, the Michelin star chef is responsible for serving some of the most coveted milkshakes in the entire world.
