Lunch in Brooklyn

Monday, February 18, 2013

We have been wanting to try The Meatball Shop for weeks and today seemed as good as any to head to Brooklyn.  It was cold and windy.  The kind of wind that makes you want to turn round for a minute as you’re walking just to brace yourself.   The kind of wind that makes you wish you had zipped your coat instead of just relying on the snaps.  Seriously cold wind, but a brioche roll with choice of meatball, sauce and cheese…they call it The Smash and it definitely took away the chill.  The restaurant was full of beautiful lighting, warm wood, exposed beams and brick and wonderful service.e Meatball Shop in BrooklynIMG_0215themeatballshopMyers_candle A Meyer’s candle in the restroom…of course, they did not miss a single detail.  Time to head back to midtown for a little shopping.  We take the Queensboro Bridge and the great thing about a windy day is that it’s crystal clear and beautiful from every angle.the_Queensboro_BridgeRoosevelt Island Tram_NYC

    What a cute restaurant, not to mention how delicious that sandwich looks. Love the beautiful wood and exposed brick. Didn’t know Meyer’s made candles…where have I been? Must look for those.

    As always your photos are amazing…that shot of the bridge, wow…stunning!!

    Have a great day 🙂

    Hi Annie, Thank you so much for sharing this. Your blog makes me want to continue to explore all kinds of new places. I enjoyed the photos! Enjoy the day!

    I want a meatball sandwich right now! Darn:( the photo of the bridge needs to be framed!

  • Tabitha

    Great looking place, inside and outside. A meatball sandwich is new to me but oh I’d love to try it.

    The Meatball Shop sounds like heaven on earth—wish they’d open one in LA!

    Now I want to pack away my simmering tagine and make meatballs.

    Your pictures get better and better.

    Thanks for the love.

    What a great looking place. I love the dark wall, all the frames and the vintage style pendant lights.

    It looks so quaint and lovely! Love the bright blue sky, too!

  • Hillary Cottle

    Incredible pictures! I felt the warmth of the restaurant coming in from the cold, experienced the charm of the tulips and exposed brick, tasted the delicious food, and could even smell the clean scent of the candle. Thank you for the delightful trip!

    I love living vicariously through your NY adventures. I’ll have to pin this one for whenever we get a chance to go up there – my husband and I would love this place (our daughter too).

  • Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita

    It looks great, and super close to my husband’s office too … hmmm … i see a visit in the near future. I love when you share your finds, and that I live close enough to try them out. Hope all’s well!

    OMG! I so am making one of those subs next time I make a batch of meatballs. Meatballs on a brioche roll with some homemade tomato sauce and provolone cheese, yes! You know I love my food! I love the atmosphere of the meatball shop, so hip and cool!
    🙂 Jackie
