The Union Square Holiday Market offers far more than just holiday shopping. We opened our doors last week with over 150+ vendors, many of them serving delicious food and drink, making the market the perfect spot for a little pre-Thanksgiving celebration. While the market is closed Thursday for the holiday, stop by early this week to get your stuffing and cranberry fix without the family drama, or trying to cook a huge turkey in your tiny apartment kitchen. Here are a few of our favorite Thanksgiving inspired bites:

You can find all your favorite Thanksgiving flavors in a perfectly portioned, bite-sized sandwich with Mighty Balls’ Turkey Cranberry Slider. The rich savory flavor of their turkey meatball is perfectly complimented by a delicious, and slightly spicy cranberry horseradish sauce. Topped with tangy goat cheese and perched on a freshly baked mini bun, it has all the flavors of Thanksgiving in one delicious package.

All week Food Republic’s celebration of Mac & Cheese (#macandcheeseweek) has had us dreaming of the rich and creamy comfort food. We were thrilled to see that they found a delicious rendition of the dish at Broadway Bites when they featured Red Hook Lobster Pound’s Lobster Macaroni & Cheese on their Instagram account. The decadent dish is made with a creamy 4 cheese sauce and organic pasta, and is topped with 1/3 of a pound of fresh buttery lobster. Clearly, the folks over at Food Republic know what’s good.

Even though Mac & Cheese week is close to over, through November 14th visitors to Broadway Bites by UrbanSpace (in Greeley Square) can enjoy this, and several other renditions of the classic cheese and pasta dish.

Gumbo Bros

Today is National Gumbo Day — what better way to celebrate than by chatting with one of UrbanSpace’s newest vendors, The Gumbo Bros?

From now through November 14th, visitors to Broadway Bites by Urbanspace (in Greeley Square) can warm up with a bowl of the Gumbo Bros’ delicious gumbo, wash it down with an Abita root beer, and learn a little bit more about Cajun and Creole food. The Gumbo Bros, Adam and Clay, are two friends who met in college at Louisiana State University, and are now bringing a bit of the Big Easy to the Big Apple. We chatted with Adam Lathan, Executive Chef/Cofounder of The Gumbo Bros to find out what the secret to good gumbo is, and what they’re snacking on at Broadway Bites when they aren’t eating gumbo.

What motivated you to bring Louisiana creole and Cajun cuisine to New York City?

Adam Lathan: We have lived in New York for over three years now and ever since we moved here we have had to make our hometown favorites if we ever had a craving. None of the”cajun food” here really tastes like home so we set out to fix that.  Read More
