Celebrate Culinary History!
Madison Square Park has historically enjoyed some of New York City’s best restaurants on its surrounding streets, such as the society restaurant, Delmonico’s, which resided on the park’s Northwest corner for over 20 years in the late 1800s. This was also true as Madison Square Park experienced its renaissance in the early 2000s, with Eleven Madison Park, Tabla, and Shake Shack attracting savvy foodies and general positive attention to the neighborhood. These restaurants also hosted some of Madison Square Park Conservancy‘s earliest fundraisers, providing important financial support to the Conservancy, so that we could continue to beautify, secure, and program the park.
The opening of Eataly in 2010 further cemented the Flatiron neighborhood as the City’s premier location for restaurants. Now the neighborhood is unquestionably New York’s brightest culinary neighborhood, with four Michelin starred restaurants, and an abundance of New York Times starred restaurants participating in Celebrate Flatiron Chefs! on July 15.
