Madison Square Eats returns on May 2, 2014

Madison Square Eats is a bi-annual food festival in the Flatiron district. It's been announced that the opening date for Spring 2014 will be Friday, May 2nd:

No closing date is mentioned, but - if the length is the same as in years past - the festival should run through Friday, May 30th.

I plan to post the list of food vendors once it is released.

The festival is set up in Worth Square, which is a little patch of land between 24th and 25th Streets where Broadway and Fifth Avenue cross. Worth Square is bordered by the Flatiron Building on the south, Madison Square Park on the east, and 200 Fifth Avenue (aka Eataly) on the west.

As always, I can't wait! :)

Hopefully all the heavyweights like Roberta's and Briskettown tacos are back. Will be interesting to see the new faces. Im starting the engine (meaning adjusting the citibike seat)

Ziggy - Which would be your top 5 savoury and top 5 sweet vendors from this year's line up?

I'm sure you will also give us a great review that will help us with our choices when we visit end of May.
