  Their Meatball Shops Are On A Roll!

In 2010, Chef Daniel returned to his hometown of New York City to team up with his childhood friend Michael Chernow and debut The Meatball Shop in New York City’s Lower East Side. The mix-and-match menu of meatballs was an instant hit.

The two best friends were confident their concept, would be a hit, but they didn’t expect it to take off quite that quickly.

Most of us think meatballs and automatically associate them with the classics of Italian-American cooking: slow-stewed in marinara sauce, piled on top of spaghetti. Not so, meatballs show up in the cooking of other cultures, too, from the Middle East to South East Asia.

Meatballs may be simple in essence, but there are ingredient methods you need use if you want to get them right and these two best buds have obviously discovered how to make them right.
