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.

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.
UrbanSpace Garment District opens today along Broadway from 38th St – 41st St. The market hours are from 11 am – 9 pm daily, through June 14th.

Meet Kavitha Rathi, the charismatic and creative force behind UrbanSpace newcomer, Potpuri. Inspired by the Indian street food snacks of her youth, Kavitha brings a melange of flavors, spices, and colors to the Manhattan masses this spring at Mad. Sq. Eats. From crisp, potato-filled Pani Puri to chutney-garnished Samosa Chaat, her menu items (which are all vegetarian) sit at the intersection of authenticity and delight.
As a kick-off to our Meet the Maker series, we met with the lovely Kavitha to learn a bit more about the trials and tribulations of being a chef and food entrepreneur.
