The field was narrowed down to three on tonight’s edition of NBC’s America’s Next Great Restaurant. One of the finalists, who will get their own mini-chain of eateries, is Joe Galluzzi’s Brooklyn Meatball Company.
The restaurant, formerly known as Saucy Balls, will compete against Sudhir Kandula’s Indian themed Spice Coast and Jamawn Woods’ southern flavored Soul Daddy in next week’s finale. Food celebrities/judges/investors Bobby Flay, Curtis Stone, Steve Ells and Lorena Garcia will decide the winner. One of the three locations planned for the winning chain is at the South Street Seaport.
As for prognostication out of 3 experts interviewed by Nation’s Restaurant News, none picked Galluzzi’s concept as the winner.
