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.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.
