The Restaurant People Opening Fork & Balls on Las Olas: Balls of all Shapes and Sizes
For decades, good meatballs have been reserved for little old school Italian places with checkered table cloths and prosciutto hanging from the ceiling.

Fork & Balls will be offering a casual bar scene with a wide variety of balls.
Set in the space that once housed M Bar, the completely renovated space is intended to feel like a New York kitchen.
Cream colored-brick walls lined with tufted burgundy booths flank the room. In the middle sits a rectangular bar composed of a hodgepodge of wooden cabinet doors topped with a white marble top. Situated directly in the middle of the restaurant, the bar flows directly toward the open kitchen.
"We wanted to make it feel like an old New York City place that feels like someone's home," says co-owner Tim Petrillo. "The idea is that the kitchen is a part of the program."
The bar will offer a wide rotating selection of craft beer and wine on draft as well as cocktails.
With indoor, outdoor, and bar seating, the restaurant offers 160 seats.
