If you’re gonna make something unhealthy, why not step it up and make it even worse?! Or as I like to think, even better.. I don’t like my brownies too sweet, so I cut back on the sugar content to offset the sweetness of the Dulce de Leche, but if you like sickly sweet, then…

Since then we have been back twice, and always leave stuffed and pleased with our meals. Cocktails at Meatball are delicious and don’t skimp on the alcohol, and the Italian-focused wine list partners well…
