"These meatballs have been on the menu since day one. They sell in insane amounts ....glad to see that.... . . Growing up I was taught beef, pork and veal was the only meat for meatballs from my grandmother. She taught me my basics . . However I’m glad to say she was WRONG... dry aged beef is the only meat for meatballs...why? ..... because they are fucking delicious !!!! If she was still around I think she would agree with me too!! . . Come on in @baranobk and let me make you a believer . . #meatballs #meatball #dryaged #beef #italian #italianamerican #pasta #parmigiano #ricotta #tomato #pummarola"
