New, 3 comments

Already thought Michael Chernow, the owner of Meatball Shop had it made? He owns one of the most successful startup restaurants of 2010 and already has a cookbook and a second location in the works.

Today, a story in the Post tells the tale of Chernow, the hunky tattooed rising star in the restaurant world, his Danish-born wife and Wilhelmina model Donna, and their $685,000, 900-square-foot one-bedroom apartment off of Bedford Avenue with a spiral staircase to a private 800-square-foot roof deck. Chernow says he was able to woo potential Meatball Shop investors by having tastings on said deck. Click through to see bonus pig painting and adorably large dog.
