The month-long food fest lines Broadway between 39th and 41st Streets through the pedestrian thoroughfares. Open from 11am–9pm everyday, it’s an equally smart pit stop for a walk-around brunch, quick lunch-hour bite and casual dinner date with friends—just snag one of the outdoor folding tables and chairs. Newcomers to UrbanSpace including Brooklyn Wok Shop will offer pastrami dumplings topped with sauerkraut and whole-grain dijon, while Frittering Away will pour ginger lemonade either hot or cold to satiate both summertime or autumn moods.
