For some of the best gourmet meatballs in New York City, check out The Meatball Shop. Choose your meat (pork, beef, chicken, or vegetable), your sauce, and your sides. Try classics, such as the Naked Balls, a slider, or Mini Buffalo Chicken Balls. Or stop in for brunch and try the Balls Benedict. Beers, wines, and cocktails are available to quench your thirst.
Childhood friends, Chef Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, opened The Meatball Shop in 2010 and they expanded to six locations over the years. Find them in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the West Village, Chelsea, Upper East Side, Williamsburg, or in the Upper West Side.
