To encourage people to stop believing every sensational ebola headline ever, Mayor Bill de Blasio had lunch at the Greenwich Ave location of Meatball Shop this weekend, where ebola patient Craig Spencer ate last week.
De Blasio ate at the restaurant with wife Chirlane McCray and NYC Health Department commissioner Mary Bassett to prove that everything was safe and sanitized. Then he drank some Blue Bottle on the Highline and went bowling in Williamsburg, according to Grub Street.

Here’s a video of de Blasio at The Meatball Shop with co-owner Daniel Holzman. The mayor says they tried chicken meatballs with spicy tomato sauce, pork with mushroom sauce, and the veggie with pesto. Wonder if Holzman made any “ball” jokes in front of the Mayor.
