The Meatball Shop was a place that I found as I was walking the streets of New York. It was a great time and the meatballs were moist and the sides were very tasty. I ordered the chicken meatballs with marinara sauce and I was very glad that I did because the prices were very fair and it did not... More

Popped in here twice on a week's business trip as it was open late and friendly. Food was excellent, as were cocktails and beer. Great place to relax and refuel.

We ate The Meatball Shop near Orchard Street. The staff are very friendly. The meatballs are delicious. And for dessert I had the Snickerdoodle ice cream sandwich with the ice cream being ginger vanilla. We will definitely be going back.

We first tried their shop in Brooklyn a year ago. Last trip, we found this place. At both places, their balls are amazing and their side dishes are often even better (try the insanely good white beans). The icing on the cake is that their bartenders really know how to make a drink. Delicious meatballs with perfectly mixed Manhattans, in... More

This restaurant was on our restaurant list during our NY trip. Coincidental we found it today and took the decision to go for lunch, which was a great decision. Polite staff welcomed us and the meatballs were fluffy and very delicious. Definitely a place to visit in NY city.

So a friend of ours recommend us to goto The Meatball Shop , its like chicken wings but with meatballs, I absolutely loved it, I had the chicken meatball with blue cheese dressing, a must to order, everything was meatball, and side orders to go with your meal. Its really all about the sauces that you dip your meatball in,... More

These are some of the best meatballs I have ever eaten. If you have a gluten allergy you can get them without the bun, these are to die for!

A quaint, different kind of place. Meatballs galore! I'm not a meat eater, but the veggie balls were amazing! Definitely recommend.

In addition to great food the service is really good! "The kitchen sink" with mushroom gravy sauce was delicious! We were told a 30 minute wait and they were exactly right. Absolutely no complaints. For 3 of us with 1 drinks the bill came to $60. A bargain! We even had leftovers to take home.

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
