One Meatball Place will open at 513 West Main.
The way the dining room at One Meatball Place may look.
Interior build-out may begin next week for One Meatball Place, the sphere-centric dining venue first revealed in the Hook back in January. And although the Place appears closer to completion, this new West Main Street ball-zone certainly won't open by its original April opening target.
"We're part of a larger project than just us, so we've sort of been delayed by the overall project," explains owner Richard Zakin, noting that shared bathrooms and a shared patio will be part of the mix at the Main Street Market Annex.
Zakin says that the dining room design comes from Alloy Workshop, the same firm that designed the acclaimed Commonwealth Restaurant & Skybar, which opened last fall. Kitchen equipment has been purchased, he says, and the installation of the hood has begun at the building formerly housing C&R Auto across from the Blue Moon Diner.
"We're making progress– little by little," says Zakin, who now predicts a June opening.
