Michael Chernow and Daniel Holzman’s fifth outpost of the Meatball Shop is on the Upper East Side, and the location’s sentimental: It’s where the owners met when they were kids. With 116 seats and a 40-seat back room that you can rent for private parties, this is the largest location yet. The restaurant's going to liven up the neighborhood: It's the first Meatball Shop location to offer weekend brunch, with a beverage program of 40-ounce pitchers of cocktails. Breakfast plates include "balls, biscuits, and gravy" and "smash-bun French toast" with housemade apple sauce.
