No Balls For You! [UPDATED]

Michel Richard's Meatballs Not Open Yet, Menus Posted

D.C. diners may have to wait a little longer to taste Michel Richard's Meatballs. The much anticipated eatery had been expected to open on Wednesday. But not according to the sign posted on the door when Y&H stopped by at 11:15 am. "Not Open!" To further tease our taste buds, menus have been put up in the front windows.

UPDATE: A manager tells Eater the hugely ballyhooed meatballery will open "probably around 1 p.m."

UPDATE, 1:02 p.m. Still not open. At the scene, a staffer tells Y&H correspondent Caitlin MacNeal that the restaurant is still waiting on city inspectors to show up and give the green light. Stay tuned.

    How pitiful and outrageous that "city inspectors" (ie illiterate hush-money seekers with no accountability) would simply not show up, and this is considered normal. They should be fired on the spot. But will they be? We all know the answer to that.
