Fork & Balls Announces Official Opening This Week

Las Olas has been the longtime Fort Lauderdale go-to for those looking to walk around and find a bite to eat.

From old-school French to fresh-as-can-be seafood to new Asian, there's something for every palate on the famed street.

This week, the busiest street in Fort Lauderdale is about to get yet another dining option.

Fork & Balls is popping up later this week. [insert joke here]

Owned by the Restaurant People, the group that brought you YOLO, Tarpon Bend, and S3, Fork & Balls specializes in meatballs made from a variety of products.

With a contemporary bar scene and a wide selection of balls -- you know, Las Olas -- the spot is going to feature a lively, casual atmosphere, with a range of ball-oriented dishes and moderately low price points.

"We are excited to expand our brand and bring a new dining concept to Las Olas Boulevard," said Petrillo. "Our team works hard to ensure that our restaurants and nightlife venues appeal to the masses and maintain a loyal customer base by providing great service and delicious, innovative food in a fun atmosphere. Fork & Balls is the first restaurant concept built around the idea of meatballs -- and also the first in South Florida to have over 20 wines on a draft system, both of which are pretty unique and we think our guests will enjoy."

The restaurant is opening its doors on Friday at 11:30 a.m.

Fork & Balls is located at 1301 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-771-BALS, or visit
