At yesterday evening’s Taste of Tennis at the W New York, the Meatball Shop guys were joking around, as usual. When asked about their lamb meatball dish, they informed us it was called “love balls. … Meatballs are cousins of the tennis ball. If you follow the family tree,” they claimed. “We know you love balls.” Also using her imagination was Sorella’s Emma Hearst, who, when we inquired about that “steak-driven eatery” she’s reportedly opening, said, “In my mind, we’re opening a steak house … the ideas are stirring. But, we’re not actively opening a steak house.” So there you go. We guess a steak house of the mind probably serves brains? [Earlier, Related]
