Take A Bite: The Meatball Shop

Interior of The Meatball Shop, Lower East Side

On a recent jaunt throughout the Lower East Side with friends, I discovered the culinary wonder known as The Meatball Shop. Tucked away from the madness on 84 Stanton Street, this casual dining oasis is a treat for foodies near and far. Boasting a menu of balls (no pun intended) in varieties of beef, pork, chicken, and veggie, there is something for everyone here. Committed to using the best ingredients available, The Meatball Shop prides themselves in grounding all meat fresh in house, and solely including organic produce in their dishes.

I had the pleasure of having the “Smash” , which is two meatballs smashed on a toasted brioche bun, with your choice of mozzarella or provolone cheese, sauce, served with an arugula salad. I chose the special meatball of the day, which was a beef and pork blend, with mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cream. Hands down, one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. All the flavors melded perfectly, heightend with the great addition of the side salad. Arugula is one of my favorite greens as its spicy taste makes ever meal that much better.

In addition to their staple meatballs, The Meatball Shop also hosts a full bar and hand crafted ice cream sandwiches. Yummy! If you’re ever perusing the streets of LES, definitely stop in for some grub. You will not be disappointed!
