GARMENTO GOURMANDS: The garment district is not exactly at the top of the list for foodies’ favorite neighborhoods, but that may change with this fall’s launch of an outdoor food market. A hodgepodge of chefs and artisanal culinary startups will be serving their specialities along Broadway between 39th and 41st Streets, thanks to a collaboration between UrbanSpace and The Garment District Alliance. Roberta’s, Red Hook Lobster, Mighty Balls and Gelato Ti Amo will be in the mix when UrbanSpace Garment District bows Sept. 15. It will be open daily through Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m.
The collaboration is part of The Garment District Alliance’s ongoing campaign to attract forward-thinking tenants, according to GDA president Blair Randall, who has not doubt that fashion types and visitors will flock to the neighborhood’s newest addition.
