On Monday Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz presented a Proclamation to the new Meatball Shop in Williamsburg, declaring Monday, July 11 to be "The Meatball Shop Grand Opening Celebration Day in Brooklyn, USA."

As a matter of public record (and so we can remember to celebrate this day next year), we are publishing the text of the Proclamation:

Whereas, Brooklyn is most justifiably lauded for the rich array of culinary splendor that awaits residents and visitors alike, and everyone, from the comfort food seeker to the most finicky foodie is bound to encounter everything that will wow his or her palate, it is most fitting that we recognize those wonderful purveyors of decadent delectables, whose excellent taste and hard work help create the unique and fanciful flavor for which Brooklyn is widely known; and

Whereas, all of Brooklyn joins with the dynamic team of Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, the fantastic staff and eager customers for the grand opening of The Meatball Shop in the heart of Williamsburg; and

Whereas, on behalf of all Brooklynites, I salute the owners Daniel and Michael for combining their skills and their passion for fine food and taking a leap of faith to open The Meatball Shop, bringing to Brooklyn the joy and gastronomical pleasure of succulent meatballs in every variety, I commend the wide menu that includes meatball subs, seasonal sides, ice cream sandwiches and more which are ready for a sit-down meal or take-out, I congratulate Daniel and Michael on the auspicious occasion of the grand opening of The Meatball Shop, for pursuing the American Dream of business ownership, and although they have another shop in Lower Manhattan, you know you’ve made it to the big time when you have a business in Brooklyn, I wish them great success in the years to come and long lines of hungry customers, and I thank them for believing that Brooklyn is the place to do business, which helps to make our borough a better place to live, work and raise a family;
Now, therefore, I, Marty Markowitz, President of the Borough of Brooklyn, do hereby proclaim, Monday, July 11, 2011,The Meatball Shop Grand Opening Celebration Day in Brooklyn, USA.
