Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The newest location of the Meatball Shop—the chain’s seventh—is set to debut in the Hell’s Kitchen and with it comes this boozy next-door addition, decorated with black-and-white tiles, red-painted barstools and blond-wood furniture. Beverages by Rene Hidalgo (Gramercy Tavern, Milk & Honey) are cheekily named: the Poolboy features tequila, Aperol, grapefruit and honey, while the Becky with the Good Pear is a mescal-tequila number with Bartlett pears, figs and black pepper. Beyond cocktails, the drinks menu includes growlers from Gowanus’ Other Half Brewing and on-tap house-made sodas (almond, turmeric) for guests to spike with their choice of liquor. Of course, this is still a Meatball Shop operation, so you can get plenty of the meaty spheres in dishes like chicken-meatball fondue with melted alpine cheese, loaded nachos with crumbled pork meatballs and a chicken-meatball pizza with a mozzarella-Parmesan sauce.
