meatballing at Joe's Pub -

If their meatball appetizer - a plate of about 7 smallish, perfectly textured and flavored meatballs in a very thick marinara - is not thed best Italian-style meatball around, then I'm an albondiga.

actually, everything we tried on the menu was quite good, including a very garlicky bruschetta and a faultless panini. I don't know of a music venue in the city that has better food (although Jazz Standard/Blue Smoke is very good also).

    amazing! I've had nothing but extremely average food there. And of course, some incredible musical experiences!!

      Considering its a music venue - not a restaurant per se, and they hustle your ass out of there pretty quickly (something like three shows a night!), they do a competent job in the kitchen. Taken together - music quality, food quality, and vibe - Joe's Pub is one of the best venues in the city.
