Hey y’all! Hope you had a great weekend! After a week of record temperatures in NYC, mother nature made up for it this weekend with GORGEOUS weather. I’m currently writing this post from outside in our backyard with a Starbucks cold brew and some leftover cookie dough from Dō. Sunday funday indeed! Anyways, I’ve been meaning to tell you guys about one of our favorite New York City restaurants, The Meatball Shop, for awhile now. We’ve mentioned it here and here, but have never done a full post on it. Which is a shame because we go there all the time!
You may be asking yourselves, “Meatballs? I thought they didn’t eat meat?” (which you’ve probably picked up on if you’ve watched any of our What We Ate In A Day videos over on our YouTube channel). And you would be correct. But The Meatball Shop has an INSANELY good veggie meatball that I constantly crave.
There are several locations in the city, and we’ve been to most of them. They also have a cookbook if that interests you, and I’ve seen their classic tomato sauce sold at grocery stores around the city, but you can also buy it online.
The Meatball Shop is that perfectly casual unfussy dining experience that still manages to offer delicious and well plated food. Upon being seated at a table, they hand you a menu and a dry erase marker so you can customize your order exactly to your liking.
My go to order is the veggie balls with the parmesan cream sauce. In the cooler months I get a side of mashed potatoes, but since I happened to be there on the hottest day of the year last week I opted for the lighter option, a side salad, instead. They also have an excellent cocktail menu. Their moscow mule is one of my favs!
The other great thing they offer are “singles” which is great if you want to try a few different flavor combinations. And how cute are the little dishes they come in?!
With daily creative specials (the special meatball of the day when I was there was mac and cheese!) you have to return again and again to give everything a try!
If you find yourself in New York City, you will not be disappointed by a meal at The Meatball Shop. And if you’re local but don’t feel like going out, did you know they now deliver through Seamless? Game. Changer.
