The Meatball Shop

84 Stanton St.
New York, NY 10002

A restaurant completely devoted to meatballs…what’s not to like? The cities tastiest balls come in five varieties served in your choice of six sauces. Order the Spicy Pork Meatball Hero and try not to rave about it to all your friends. No reservations accepted, so there can be a wait on popular nights, but it’s worth it. The Meatball Shop has five locations: Lower East Side, West Village, Chelsea, Upper West Side, and Williamsburg.

Woodwork

583 Vanderbilt Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11238
(718) 857-5777

Woodwork is the place in Brooklyn, if not the whole of NYC, to watch soccer – but you can also catch any other big game here. This footie bar also has a great selection of food (the mac and cheese is delicious) and you’re almost certain to be shooting picklebacks by the end of the night. Make sure to stop in during the next Team USA World Cup mayc and chant with the entire bar.
