That meatball restaurant that could have been so much more has officially closed.
The Meatball Joint is now closed. The Meatball Joint was created by South Beach chef Bernie Matz, who also runs The Café at Books & Books and Bernie’s LA Café.
Matz says the limited menu was restricted by the small space, which gave The Meatball Joint a small kitchen, which made it a difficult first year to survive.
The Café at Books & Books and Bernie’s LA Café are still going strong, says Matz.
Matz said that there might be a slight chance of The Meatball Joint opening somewhere on the mainland at some point, but there are no plans set.
Thank you to The Meatball Joint for giving us some balls for almost a full year.
