Top Chef season-one finalist Dave Martin dishes out a variety of meatballs—including turducken, braised pork and short rib—at this 68-seat East Village restaurant. Pair yours with one of the offbeat sauces (green curry peanut, salsa verde, fire-roasted marinara) on a Eli's Bread challah roll, or opt for a house-made pasta or salad instead.
