You probably know the drill here: pick your balls, sauce, and sides, and enjoy a very casual and reliable meal. The Hell’s Kitchen location has a few seats at the bar and some big communal tables in the middle for groups, and meatball heros and vegetarian balls (that actually taste good). This is an easy choice for a dinner that you don’t want to spend a lot of money on, or when you don’t feel like cooking.
