Balls, balls, balls – so is the every day business of restaurateurs Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, creators of the amazing Meatball Shop concept. Don’t let anyone tell you differently; they started the fad. They took Grandma’s balls and made the new slow, fast food in New York. With multiple locations and an empire that’s growing faster by the minute, meatballs are taking over Manhattan. The Meatball Shop does every kind of twist on the American classic in the most delicious way possible, and diners can customize their dishes however they’d like.

“If I’m in the mood for comfort – and want to feel like my Italian grandmother is in the kitchen – then [I’ll go to] The Meatball Shop.” – Denise Porcaro (Owner, Flower Girl)
