New Restaurant Alert: Then Blackstone Meatball Will Look Good on Top of Spaghetti, All Covered with Cheese...

Posted by on Thursday, March 24th, 2016 at 3:25pm.

It's not every day that you run across a good meatball. 

They tend to be a thing of the past in most parts, specialty you get a few times a year when you have enough energy to mix up some ground meat, throw in spices and toss them in the oven while the noodles boil. You might splurge once in a while on a meatball sub, but it never quite tastes the same, does it? 

Well, for those of you who crave a consistent menu of meaty spheres, your manna is ready to fall from heaven. According to recent reports by the restaurants Facebook page and by the Omaha World-Herald, a restaurant by the name of The Blackstone Meatball is set to open sometime this summer.

Wait...a Restaurant Devoted to Meatballs? Umm....

Don't worry. Blackstone's concept is more than just a pile of meatballs brought out to your table. Just take a look at this photo and you'll see why these succulent orbs are more than just pasta fare:

So as you can see, the meatball is a versatile fellow. But here's the catch; we're not quite sure how Blackstone is going to flesh out their menu but we did pick up a few details.

Is Your Mouth Watering Yet? You Aren't the Only One

On March 24, the Omaha World-Herald ran a story on the forthcoming haven of meat. Here's what they said about the restaurant: 

  • The French Bulldog's Matt Baum will be the chef. The Bulldog has a sterling reputation on Yelp, so we assume Matt's Blackstone creations will be just as amazing
  • There will be five different meatballs on the menu
  • Those five options can be integrated into a salad or sandwich
  • There will be 10 sides and a few desserts
  • It will be located on the second level of 3914 Farnam St. (although their Facebook page says 3910 Harney St.)

That sounds good to us! If you want to learn more about The Blackstone Meatball, keep tabs on their website or stop by their Facebook page for updates.
