On Saturday, April 1, the Orange Ale House Grille and Burger Bar, 517 Boston Post Road, hosted the third annual Greater New Haven Best Meatball Challenge.
This was a fun night to see who makes the best balls around and proceeds went to Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
A Wine Tasting was sponsored by Connecticut Distributors and a beer tasting by Dichello Distributors.
The contest was open to individual entries and the judges did not have an easy task. But, in the end there was one top prize awarded, and that went to Natalie Davis for her chicken franchise meatballs. She received a trophy and a $100 gift card to the Ale House.
Last year’s winner Mike Martone earned the “People’s Choice” award this year.
Guest Judges included Vincent Farricelli, Robert Modena, Erin Logan, Anna Zap from Star 99.9, Mike Lapitino from WPLR.
