Notably, the cheese on the grinder seems to be the same shredded mozz that goes on their pizza. The only other place I’ve seen that does this is Bantam Pizza[/url] out in Litchfield, but I imagine it’s a common thing at restaurants that are pizzerias first and grinder shops second. Which isn’t to put down the grinder at all – it looks fantastic, especially the bread!
It’s also interesting to see the variations in the meatballs themselves: Joe (whole meatballs), Bantam (thin-sliced), Franklin/Maple/Second Poquonock (thick-sliced). I think Rosa’s in Wallingford does whole meatballs as well.
