Me N Mo: Meatballs on a roll on South St.
The Frusone brothers, who owned Ristorante San Carlo and Gnocchi, are back with a restaurant and bar at 214 South St.
The Frusone brothers are fixtures around South Street, from their days at the posh Ristorante San Carlo to the much more casual Gnocchi, which closed a year and a half ago after a 15-year run.
Giancarlo and chef Sandro Frusone are backed by family - Milan (Giancarlo's wife), Giana (Giancarlo's daughter) and Ercole (Sandro's son, who moved from Italy just this week) - in this homey, easy-on-the-budget bar-restaurant, which allows patrons to mix and match up to eight meatball and sauces.
You can get three balls, provolone or mozzarella, in a Sarcone's roll, plus a salad, for $11. How about a plate of four balls with one sauce and focaccia for eight bucks.
Sides, including house-made spaghetti, gnocchi and lasagna, are $5. Desserts, like creme brulee or panna cotta, are $5.
Varieties include beef and spicy meat sauce, vegetarian and pesto, lamb and rosemary red wine reduction, and chicken with sauce a la vodka.
Ten-seat bar serves wine by the glass and bottle, plus bottled and canned beers, spirits and house-made sangria.
Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday.
