You’re in luck if you like balls, meat that is. The Meatball Shop is currently celebrating five years in business with a heckuva promotion.

For starters, the meatball purveyors teamed up with Speedy Romeo for two weeks of “El Taco Grande.” That’s the name of the new limited edition collaborative pizza offered at the trendy Clinton Hill pizzeria. The pie features pork pibil, tomatillo salsa, Mexican Escovitch (pickled jalapeños, radishes, onions and carrots), Cotija cheese, Mexican crema, and fresh cilantro. It’s available until February 20.

And then there is the main event at the flagship Stanton location later tonight. Where it all began. It’s a special evening with an anniversary menu, and founding owner-chef Daniel Holzman in the kitchen. Starting at 6pm, any entree plus side will cost only $5. Good luck getting seats.

Daily Ball: Mediterranean Lamb Meatball, the first ever Daily Ball to be served at The Meatball Shop
Risotto: Black Trumpet and Black Truffle Risotto
Roasted Vegetable: Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Crème Fraiche and Caviar
Market Salad: Celery and Romaine Salad with Fried Capers and Bottarga
Daily Greens: Creamed Chard with Fontina Parmesan
