In honor of the newest location of The Meatball Shop opening in Chelsea (9th Ave and 22nd Street), I figured it time to blog about our quick takeout from the Greenwich Ave location.
We had just gotten out of a food event and somehow found ourselves still hungry and more than a little tipsy. When we realized that The Meatball Shop was right next door, we determined it was as good a time as any to finally try it. The wait was over an hour, but there is a takeout counter in the back. We had our Meatball Sandwiches in hand and were in a cab on our way home in less than 20 minutes. Not too shabby.
We got home and opened up our box of goodies. Mike got something resembling a meatball parm.
And I got one with a fried egg on top.
It was fine. Okay. Passable. But it didn’t change my life. I’m not sure if it was because it was takeout or because we got the sandwich versions (which kind of reminded me of a regular burger, especially since the roll was so soft).
I guess I just need to hit up the new Chelsea location and check it out before I make my final assessment.
