TMS keepin it Amazeballs in Chelsea

The Meatball Shop: Sliders, Kitchen Sink Salad, Risotto,
White Beans, & Chelsea Pie
We loved the original location of The Meatball Shop on the LES, but it was quite the trek so we didn't make it down that way very often. Imagine how excited we are to have a Chelsea location now. OK, yes, it's actually old news and for some reason I thought I already posted about it, but to my surprise I haven't done a post yet so I needed to correct this wrong.

Tonight we snagged some tickets to see improv troupe "The Godfathers" at UCB and were lucky enough to find no wait for two people on a Friday night. I've been really enjoying Monkey Shoulder scotch recently, so when I saw the special cocktail included it I ordered it no questions asked. However, then when I had a sip I had to ask what was in it because it was pure magic. Turns out their bartender Marshall had created it for a Monkey Shoulder cocktail contest and, no surprise to me, he won. This fantastic concoction featured strawberry rhubarb syrup, lime juice, vanilla liquor, rhubarb bitters, and a brown sugar rim. On our way out I asked to shake his hand.

Ok right, so the food. That's good here too. The Mr went for a variety Sliders and I got the Kitchen Sink Salad because this is one salad that will never leave you feeling unsatisfied. We also got a side of White Beans and Risotto which of course was way too much food, but how does that phrase go again? There's no such thing as too much of a good thing!
