BocaLocals hosted the event, and restaurants in and around Boca Raton were generous and kind enough to host our group and present everyone with some absolutely delicious food. Some presented items right off their menu and others prepared something special for the group. Most places served bread (Yes! something I could eat!) and other dishes off their menu, and some also paired their meatballs with a specific wine.
Presentation wise, I was partial to 13 American Table’s “steakhouse” style ball. I ate one of the potato chips (they were very large) and smothered it in the blue cheese fondue. Um, hello deliciousness! I smeared it all over a piece of bread too; I couldn’t get enough of it! While everyone devoured meatballs, I licked plates clean of blue cheese fondue. This was our last stop of the madness, and we all had a great time, as you can see below. Cheers!
15 restaurants and at least 20 different kinds of meatballs later, the winner will finally be announced tomorrow, Tuesday, April 8th live on wrpbitv.com with Barry Epstein. A press release will be sent out to at least 50 media contacts and all the participating restaurants, and there will be e-mail blasts and social media shout-outs from BocaLocals and Page One Graphics. Reviews from all the bloggers involved will be shared. Want to know which meatball was the tastiest? Which was the most inventive? Or maybe you’d like to try some of Boca’s most classic-style meatball? Check out all of the judge’s reviews to get a feel for some of the balls this side of town has to offer…
