Best Meatballs in the U.S.
Tomato-sauce braised pork necks are the key to the outstanding juicy meatballs at this casual offshoot of chef-owner Tony Mantuano’s Spiaggia. First the pork necks are braised in a sauce made with San Marzano tomatoes, then the meat is picked off the bone and combined with pork shoulder, pancetta, Calabrian chiles and milk-soaked Tuscan bread. The spicy meatballs are served with tomato sauce and topped with Pecorino Romano and freshly chopped parsley. spiaggiarestaurant.com/cafe
