THE MEATBALL SHOP
I FINALLY made it to the Meatball Shop, and now I’ll be dreaming about their naked balls (that’s what they call them)! There are a variety of meatballs for you to choose from, and you decide how you’d like them served. I ordered the naked chicken meatballs smothered in mushroom gravy with a fried egg and parmesan on top. Need I say more?
Dessert? Homemade ice cream sandwiches: You choose the cookie and ice cream flavor. I went with the brownie cookies and espresso ice cream. It’s still melting in my mouth.
Pretty much like any other LES establishment, this place is tiny, so make sure you get there early and be prepared to wait for a table. Good thing there are a few great bars in the neighborhood.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re open until 4 a.m., and the food is CHEAP (by New York standards)….
