Urbanspace, the outside market located in various parts of the city – our favorite being Broadway – is pretty much a glamorized version of the 100-year-old hot dog cart. With an endless array of food options and a diverse list of vendors, the choices you can find at Urbanspace range from truffle oil grilled cheeses to salmon skin sushi burritos. Of course, there are some pretty great iced teas and cocktails too.
