Here we are again on another beautiful Saturday night and the destination this time around was the Meatball Shop in Williamsburg, NY. As soon as we entered and the energy of the place engulfed us. It did not take that long to be seated., although once we sat, I got antsy waiting to order.
The Meatball Shop’s ordering system is unique and I really appreciate the eclectic yet interactive way of ordering food. The scoop: they give you a black marker with your menu and you check off your order.
You can choose “naked balls” or any type of meatballs and have them your way. Alternatively, you can choose to order your dish as sliders, heroes, smash (yes they actually smash them), and they have something called “everything but the kitchen sink salad” where your meatballs of choice are served over tossed salad and side dishes are available for an extra nominal fee.
Additionally, this is where this place earns extra points. For all you vegans and or vegetarians do not walk away thinking they forgot about you, because the offer veggie balls as well and an abundance of veggies as sides to satisfy your palate.
The food is delicious, the atmosphere is great, and however I must warn you it gets crowded quickly. On the flip-side, they do not accept reservations, but make up for it by offering new daily recommendations for specials, kick-ass cocktails and jello shots to pair with your mid-afternoon grub…lunch anyone?
Oh and by the way high fives across the board for their three locations on Stanton, Greenwich and of course Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. They also stay open late so after you finish hitting the bar scene and want to satisfy your late night craving, this is the after party.
