Madison Square Eats is Back!!!
My favorite semi-annual pop-up is back for the Spring season and this years line up is better than ever. My first stop is usually at Roberta's for their delicious Bee Sting pie but this year Takumi Taco won the first season pit stop. I've become obsessed with both their Spicy Tuna and Short Rib tacos topped with cabbage, wasabi crema and scallion.
Old favorites like Red Hook Lobster Pound, Illili Box and Asiadog were on hand doling out lobster rolls, shawarma and all sorts of specialty hot dogs topped with Chinese pork belly, and sesame slaw. But the biggest line of the day was at newcomer The Truffleist. In addition to their specialty truffle oil and butter products they were whipping up Cheesesteak Sandwich's with rich truffle bechamel sauce and melted Swiss cheese.
And there's no shortage of beverage options this year; passionfruit & mango margaritas at Mexicue, prickly pear Shiner Bock and white wine sangria at Hill Country , bloody marys, mimosas, wine and even a mango lemonade can all be found in this tiny little square.
If it's too crowded for a seat just walk across to Madison Square Park where all the gorgeous flowers are in bloom. It's the perfect time to be dining al fresco in Flatiron.
