The Meatball and Wine Bar empire is built on two, equally weighty, premises — Melburnians love their meat and they especially love it in ball form. Those two truths have seen the MAWB phenomenon slowly take over the city, one quarter at a time, from before meatballs were popular right the way through until now now. And the meatball keeps rolling, this time all the way across the Yarra.

They've just opened their new location on Windsor's Chapel Street, and while the venue isn't a completely new ball game, the menu has been tweaked. You can expect some new additions to the meatball menu and an emphasis on meatball salads. But don't worry, you'll still be able to order your fave pan-fried creamy gnocchi.

The new venue occupies a heritage-listed building that previously inhabited by San Churro, with the reno carried out by ball-busters Techne Architects (who are responsible for Garden State, Prahran Hotel, Biggie Smalls and Jimmy Grants Eastland). And yes, they really went balls to the wall with this one. The redone site features seating for up to 60 with private dining booths, an outdoor area and cool marble benches. No sweat dripping down your balls in this venue, no sir!

Ball doesn't sound like a word any more. Sorry for all the ball jokes. Anyway, there's now another Meatball And Wine Bar in Windsor and we really hope they keep opening them up because we've got so, so many more ball-related puns to get through.

Find The Meatball And Wine Bar at 150 Chapel Street, Windsor, or visit their website for more information.
