Our concept began years ago when we realized the simplicity of the meatball, and how it is a comfort food cherished across all age groups and cultures. So many of us grew up with our Grandmothers making Sunday dinner where “The Meatball” was the simple and delicious focal point of the entire meal! Our chef has taken his inspiration from those fond memories of food and family and with the freshest ingredients has developed meatballs, salads & sides to satisfy everyone in your family. In creating our first “That Meetball Place” on Main Street in Patchogue in 2014, we were able to provide that great vibe where friends and families gather together to enjoy fresh, simple and delicious food. We are also proud to be a part of the revitalization of Patchogue, a booming Main Street Village. In the Patchogue location, we wanted to bring to Long Island a restaurant/bar that retained the feel, and charm of downtown New York City. We purchased a 10,000 sq ft barn in Pennsylvania that was knocked down and can be seen throughout the interior and exterior of the restaurant. You can watch a time lapse video of barn being dismantled.


Now we are thrilled to announce the opening of our second “That Meetball Place,” this time in another resurging Main Street Village here on Long Island, Farmingdale. We believe our concept is a perfect fit for this close knit and welcoming community now growing with a new buzz and activity. So, come on down and have a “BALL” with us! We have so much to offer: bringing people together in our warm environment with a chic vibe. Join us for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch or cocktails on our outdoor terrace and lounge./http://epmstudios.com Our concept began years ago when we realized the simplicity of the meatball, and how it is a comfort food cherished across all age groups and cultures.

boom nice



as I said in last episode a trend that I'm noticing with Realtors a lot is that you guys really strive for impact so what's your impact goal for 2023 I think that my main goal would be to show to all my social sphere and any potential clientele that I'm not offering the same thing in the sense of service as every other realtor I offer a very unique service in every aspect whether it's you're searching for your first home your next home investment property you're selling your property whether it's a fix or up that you're selling whether it's a Million Dollar Plus home that you're selling whatever it is I'm gonna give you a super super unique service and that's kind of my goal to portray that to everyone that I can throughout this year how would you describe what you do other than just unique well I'd say I'd say unique is is my best way of describing it just because it's different it's not what the common person does the average person will just look straight up at okay what's on the MLS what's on the market all right sending this property to my home buyer or average person average realtor trying to help someone sell their house all right get some pictures throw it on MLS let's hope it sells no I'm I'm looking to help them do video marketing get professional photography in there go door knock around their neighborhood see if anyone has buyers looking market and network with other Realtors who might have the buyers so I'm trying to go in every aspect as in-depth as I possibly can in the sense of marketing home for someone that's a seller for buyers you know besides just looking at what's on the market I'm reaching out to people with rental properties people who previously tried to sell their properties off Market type of opportunities to try and get them a better deal so at the end of the day that's where I'm kind of pushing buttons and hoping to find a lot of success and showing hey there's more value when you use someone like me yeah then Doug competition I guess you could say nice I love that and shout out to EPM because I know they're supplying the video marketing the photography everything the immaculate edits everything so everything shout out to you thank you they are on top of their gang everything marketing I do through them and they kill it every single time thank you so much Jacob thank you meatball please for having us thank you Tom once again and um I hope you guys enjoyed this episode of tasting New York if you did don't forget to comment like and share the video drop a comment we need to get this to 10 000 views because if we do that for a day I get to take over as assistant general manager this episode of tasty New York gets over 10 000 views I become the assistant general manager for one day whichever day you choose the week after it's gonna be Monday 10 a.m to 10 30 a.m and when that happens it's gonna be free drinks for everyone and we're gonna be right there to catch the whole thing on camera oh yeah so yes tune in next time and yeah see you soon
