Best Late-Night Restaurant: The Meatball Shop (Readers’ Choice)

Meatball Shop

Tacos, pizza, crepes, burgers: these are the mainstays of the Lower East Side’s “drunk food” repertoire. In 2009, the Meatball Shop opened on Stanton Street, in a location ideally suited to capitalize on the booming LES market for alcohol-absorbing grub. As it turned out, the meatball sandwiches and entrees (not to mention ice cream sandwiches) are a significant cut above the usual late-night fare. So it’s not too surprising that voters chose the Meatball Shop to satisfy their late night cravings, even if you’ve got to elbow your way to a table or the bar.
