The brainchild of Boston Nightlife Ventures (think: Southern Kin and Wink & Nod) has been showing off its storefront for several months now, keeping Southie’s resident foodies impatiently awaiting its arrival. Obviously, we’ll be seeing meatballs on the menu, but earlier reports have us looking forward to “global inspired” upgrades like turkey, beef, Korean pork, and veggie balls galore. Certified Meatball Company will call 429 West Broadway home.
