The Meatball Shop

I had the opportunity to visit this new lower east side haunt (84 Stanton Street) right after it opened on Tuesday, February 9. (Thanks to the tip from Daily Candy NYC!)

This place has just the right ingredients – from the interactive menu where you use check boxes to place your order (see below) to the delightful staff and just simple, good food at reasonable prices (meatballs served up in a variety of ways, along with homemade ice cream sandwiches for dessert!) it’s just right on.

I selected the pork meatballs with parmesan and spicy meat sauce with risotto underneath as my main dish, however depending on how you like your ‘balls, you can select what you want under your dish – from white beans to mashed potatoes to rigatoni under or as a side. My friend and I split sides of the freshly-milled polenta, steamed spinach and roasted vegetables.

The shop also serves up great “sliders” as a part of this which I had to try because I just loved the concept – a big meatball on each slider.

And as I mentioned above, if you haven’t stuffed yourself fully on the meatballs (actually, there is always room for ice cream, especially here, believe it or not), then trying the homemade ice cream sandwiches is a MUST. I got the peanut butter cookie with vanilla ice cream. Truly scrumptious.

This place ‘aint big, so come early as you’ll be waiting for a while – and hopefully a little longer after reading this. 🙂

    The wine was very good too…the waiter told us the particular kind of wine we were drinking is not served anywhere else in nyc, which may or not be true, but it was still pretty good.

    Yummy! Sounds like an awesome dinner. I would say that there is ALWAYS room for ice cream! 🙂
