Well certainly Epson papers work great. I prefer printing most B&Ws on matte paper, but it depends on what you what your image to look like. Epson Luster would be another choice if you don't want gloss.
If you want to spend the extra money, Epson Velvet Fine Art is my favorite paper for B&W prints.
In any event, make sure your system is properly color calibrated, and that you are using the proper paper setting and paper profile. Without that, you may get strange color casts. If printing on Matte paper, make sure you have set the printer to use them.
