it's painful since she loves shrimp, lobster, scallops, etc. All of those are a neg now.
Have you ever heard of The Meatball Shop? The same friend that took me to Dory wants to take me here tonight. You're wife didn't get sick there too, I hope?
i have, apparently there's a new one near me. 2 or so years ago, the office ordered from the downtown location, and we ended up with like 250 "st. patricks's day" themed meatballs that were made of corned been and smothered in a weird sauerkraut cream sauce. Gross.
I suppose it's worth trying again, but if I'm downtown I'd sooner just swing by DBGB for some sausages and fromage de tete. If you're going to the uptown one, I'd sooner just get a lobster roll from Luke's followed by sweets at whatever that fancy French place is across from Citarella.
If you're uptown and a lobster roll isn't going to do it for you and a tad fancy is a must, then eat at Sfoglia, but only after you visit Kitchen Arts & Letters.
Kitchen Arts & Letters is awesome. I always went last summer before whatever wine dinner was at Daniel. May visit again next week before the Grouse dinner, which I am very much excited for.
I am assuming my friend is taking me to the one downtown. He lives in Chinatown. DBGB may be a nice alternative.
The furthest one uptown is near 23rd street on 9th ave,
DBGB is indeed quite good.
fuck meatball shop. I'm bringing a $5 bill (actually, $5.50) and getting spicy beef soup at Super Taste on (i believe) Eldridge. My haircut place is a few blocks east on either Ludlow or Essex, so everytime a cut is necessary, I stop there and have soup before my cut. And then, on the way back, I pick up another order for the following day plus an order of veggie and egg soup for the wife. I'd pick up 4 total orders if I could carry it all.
Well, I wasn't married to the idea of meatballs. I'll have to see if he's heard of it. May also try to find that funky shit in a cup you say is so delicious.
hot taho. I get it from a window at 46 Mott Street (thanks google street view). I think it's 75 cents for a small, which is plenty. It's one of those weird addictions for me, I first tried it from that very same place maybe 11-12 years ago. It's really the only tofu-based dish that I like, and is a perfect afternoon sweet snack. You may or may not like it, it's certainly a little weird, but again, I kill a bowl in 2 minutes.
a quick google of Super Taste brings up gothamist. Nice.
I stand corrected. I was looking through my inbox and I also get an email from Thrillist telling me that the UES location is soon to be serving brunch too. D'oh.
Well dammit, now I want noodle soup.
dude, i've been craving it for about 2 weeks now.
I think Meatball Shop's meatballs are pretty pedestrian, but their ice cream sandwiches are certified.
This. Man are they good. I'll never order a meatball at the meatball shop again.
