On Monday, February 9, The Meatball Shop will celebrate its fifth anniversary at its flagship Stanton Street location on the Lower East Side by offering diners any entrée and side for $5 from 6 p.m. until close. This includes a celebratory menu from chef Daniel Holtzman, who will be in the kitchen all evening.
The Meatball Shop’s anniversary menu includes the first-ever Daily Ball, a Mediterranean lamb meatball; black trumpet and black truffle risotto; roasted fingerling potatoes with crème fraîche and caviar; celery and romaine salad with fried caper and bottarga; and creamed chard with fontina Parmesan. All other Meatball Shop menu items will also be available, including the Meatball Hero, Meatball Smash, and the Kitchen Sink Salad.
The anniversary celebration will also include a special cocktail for the night called The Last Word, made with Bulldog Gin, Chartreuse green, lime juice, and Maraschino liqueur. All proceeds from the bar will be donated to The Covenant House.
