Phone: 702-866-0703
Status: Certified open

Meatball Spot has come back from the dead at the Miracle Mile Shops, no longer as a celebrity hosting restaurant, but as a fast food counter. Once a full-service destination at Town Square run by chef Carla Pellegrino, the new take-out venture features five tables open to the shopping mall and a trimmed down menu. The Town Square location abruptly shuttered in August after less than a year in business.

Trading on a never confirmed rumor that Britney Spears was a partner in the venture, the food court-style design befits the very casual concept's ambition to expand beyond this location.

Hoping to capitalize on the adjacent location to the entrance to the PH Live theater where Britney Spears will begin a two-year residency beginning Dec. 27., the very limited seating and lack of ease in eating the Meatball Spot's food standing up might prove a disadvantage for those hoping to grab a quick snack while waiting on line for the show to begin.

The minimal look and design, matches the newly compressed menu of meatballs, salads and sandwiches. Current sandwiches options are restricted to meatball fillings. Unlike the previous incarnation, no cocktails or alcohol are on offer, nor desserts.

Open seven days a week, the Meatball Spot offers no updates or menu listing on their Website, which still promotes the shuttered Town Square location, but their Facebook page reports opening hours are 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily.
