First Ocean Property Debuts: 24th & Meatballs

New, 16 comments

[Avila, 8/10/12]

Adam Berger's balls have dropped. The Tabla owner throws the doors open at his meatball-only microconcept 24th & Meatballs, which debuts today in the now-buzzing Ocean mini-restaurant collective.

As previously reported, the casual spot — with most of its seating outdoors — serves dishes rotating around four flavors of meatballs (including a spicy pork and a vegan version), with the balls appearing in dishes like heroes, panini, pasta, and polenta (all served with choice of sauce). Also on offer: a variety of $4 sides ranging from braised collard greens to semolina spaghetti to kale salads; for dessert, "waffle balls" arrive with a side of dulce de leche, chocolate, or berry compote for dipping.

Meanwhile, construction continues at the other previously announced Ocean tenants: According to Caprial Pence, her Korean fried chicken spot basa basa is shooting for an opening in the third week of August.
