The new location will maintain the same concept as the original — with staples like The Rodfather appearing on the menu — but Bowers says he has some surprises in store that he’s not quite ready to reveal yet. He did say that, at 2,000 square feet, the new Hey Meatball! will be about twice the size as the first one. It’s licensed to seat 100 people.
With a barrage of other eateries having set up shop on the Roncesvalles strip in recent months, it’s now official: if you’re hungry, go west.
