Short Vine in Clifton is really exploding into something fun and interesting food-wise. One of my favorites is Island Frydays - a little Jamaican place but there's so much more now! My coworkers and I heard about the latest addition and had to check out - Meatball Kitchen!
There are also sides - but being a bunch of girls - we didn't try any of them. They're a little off the beaten path - but I've heard good things - some of my girls were just wanting a bag of chips. It might be nice to add that as well.
The sides are things like spicy kale, onion/garlic bread pudding (stuffing - right?), sriracha sweet potato mash and more.
Amy got the pasta with meat sauce and beef meatballs - I have to say - it looked delicious. She was underwhelmed though as well. She said while it all tasted fine she never really has a craving for this food so wouldn't have any hankering to come back.
Why Should You Go? If you really love meatballs - you have to go. They have meatball tacos and a meatball burger as well. Nobody in our party of 7 came away saying, "I can't wait to come back!" - that said - I actually liked it for the most part. It was really warm and comforting - especially in this snowy winter. So - sort of a mixed bag - worth a try for sure.
