Hit up 24th & Meatballs yesterday for lunch. I'd say my impressions were pretty similar to Jill-O's. Feel free to chortle at any Tobias Funke level of unintentional double-entendres to follow.
My wife got the chicken parmesan meatballs in the "Creamy Cheesy" sauce. Wasn't blown away by the balls, but they seemed fairly moist, although that may just have been because they were drowned in the cheese sauce. Very rich sauce, too rich for my wife, but that said she still finished the meatballs. I didn't try the focaccia.
I went with the meatball hero with the classic Italian balls and the tomato basil sauce. The balls are made with beef, veal, pork, and basil, according to the menu. Like Jill-O said, they're just OK. Not a whole lot of flavor here, but not flavorless, either. A little too dense, and far too dry. There was barely any tomato basil sauce on the hero, and the whole thing suffered for it. Just a really dry sandwich, even with the melted cheese. Which, incidentally, didn't have much flavor; it really made me miss the provolone piccante at
I have to say I was surprised to learn that the bread is from Fleur de Lis, because I didn't care for the texture and it didn't seem to taste like much. Might just have been because it was toasted, or maybe this is a roll they make specifically for 24th & Meatballs. Maybe just a bad batch. Whatever it is, I kept longing for flavor that wasn't there.
This place is brand new, so I wouldn't write them off yet. They definitely have some kinks to work out, though. All the food we had was totally fine, but nothing above average. Very friendly and helpful service. I'll give 'em another try in a month or two.
