We had a blast chatting about the rise of the urban food hall with Heritage Radio Network yesterday (at Roberta’s HQ!) for the latest Taste Talks segment with host Sarah Zorn. Taste Talks brings innovators from various fields together with luminaries from the food and restaurant world, to talk about what’s new and what’s next, and to expound on any and all topics related to taste.
Tune in here to hear the full segment, and chime in to the conversation at @urbanspacenyc and #eaturban.

Ring in Memorial Day weekend with drinks and delicious eats over at UrbanSpace Garment District. Our vendors are serving up sangria, wine, beer, sake cocktails, pitchers of portonic, soju cocktails and more. Read on for a list of drink offerings from participating vendors.
Paella Shack by Barraca is offering up four flavors of their famed sangria (depicted), all topped with fresh fruit. Amali has a noteworthy sustainable wine list, and a refreshing beer menu, both of which pair well with their mouthwatering gyros. Also ask about their cider and portonic pitchers! Jicama California Street Food is serving up wine, beer, and soju cocktails to go with their inventive Mexican fusion dishes. Black Iron Burger has beer to wash down their juicy burgers and aioli fries. Tampopo is serving up sake cocktails along with great wine and beer options.
As always, tag us in your food photos @urbanspacenyc and follow the conversation with the hashtag #EatUrban. Enjoy!
Come celebrate fry-day by indulging in your french fries of choice! Fry providers at UrbanSpace Garment District include Black Iron Burger’s aioli fries (depicted) loaded with scallions, bacon, and aioli dressing, Yankee Doodle Dandy’s good old American french fries, and Bar Suzette’s famed truffle fries. Enjoy! Share your photos on social media and tag us at @urbanspacenyc #UrbanSpaceGarment.
Our team has been so excited to watch this beautiful art exhibition come together in Mad. Sq. Park, adjacent to our food market. Consisting of a 500-feet canopy of golden, mirror-polished discs, it is the Conservancy’s largest and most ambitious sculpture to date.
We suggest grabbing a bite from Mad. Sq. Eats and wandering through the park to take a peek at the stunning sculpture.
Come celebrate at #MadSqEats or #UrbanSpaceGarment with nachos, tacos, margaritas and more! Depicted: Mexicue nachos and a Takumi Taco. Photo by @melissasementilli via Instagram.
Thanks to Village Voice for this fantastic write-up of Mad. Sq. Eats, featuring commentary from UrbanSpace Pop-Up Market Director, Julie Feltman. You can read the full article here: Here’s What’s New and Noteworthy at Mad. Sq. Eats.
Returning for its eighth season, Mad. Sq. Eats features pop-up stands of 30 savory and sweet spots nestled together on the west side of Madison Square Park through May 28; you’ll find food being served from the frantic midday lunch rush through dinner. There are plenty of returning vendors — Roberta’s Pizza will still get a lot of love from those who don’t want to trek to Brooklyn, and mainstays Momofuku Milk Bar and People’s Pops are doling out treats — but some freshly curated stalls offer new eats, too, and altogether, the bunch offers a pretty balanced menu from many perspectives.
