Fodor's Review

New York's first full-service meatball restaurant has a pedigree chef, a professional waitstaff, a wine list, and a hip crowd. And the meatballs, oh, the meatballs. Choose beef, pork, chicken, or veggie, or "special" ball options that range from chili cheese balls to Greek lamb balls to Buffalo chicken balls, then decide if you want them served simple as is, in sliders or a hero, as a salad, or as a platter; all with an appropriate choice of sauce and cheese. The meatball concept quickly caught on and there are now five locations: four in Manhattan and one in Williamsburg. Mix 'n' match ice-cream sandwiches—choose your flavor and cookie—are worth saving room for.
