Time Out says

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.
