It’s back: Mad. Sq. Eats is returning to the Flatiron District at the end of the month, and foodies all over the City should rejoice.
The festival, which convenes twice a year in Worth Square, brings together the city’s top chefs and restauranteurs for a culinary experience like no other. Sponsors Urbanspace and the Madison Square Park Conservancy select more than 30 food and drink vendors to populate the square, giving New Yorkers access to a plethora of top-notch food in one stop. The event lasts for four weeks, so you’ll have plenty of time to sample all of the vendors that catch your eye.
This year’s crowd includes some old favorites along with new and exciting finds.
Returning hits include: Paella Shack by Baracca, which features the signature Spanish dish and an inventive sangria lab; Two Tablespoons, a stall committed to serving delicious and colorful gluten-free/vegetarian options; and Macaron Parlour, a shop known for its exotic flavorings (Cheetos macarons have been known to make an appearance).
Exciting newcomers include: Onohut by ASIADOG, a Hawaiian-inspired hot dog, patty, and sausage vendor; Masa, a tamale maker with Californian street food roots; and Beatrice Burger, an offshoot of The Beatrice Inn, home to chef Angie Mar.
We are definitely getting excited for Madison Square Eats Spring 2016!
