Sauce on the Sidelines for Another Month (at Least)
Still on the sidelines, Sauce might soon return.
Workers busy with renovations inside the Rivington Street restaurant said to expect a reopening sometime “next month.” Given the apparent state of the interior, though, that seems ambitious.
You’ll recall that a kitchen fire at the end of December knocked out the locals favorite (Monday nights half price). Apartments upstairs on the second floor were also damaged.
There hasn’t been much official word about the return, though. Only a sign on the front door of 78 Rivington alerts customers to the fire and repairs within.
In the meantime, Sauce fans can dine at their newish pizzeria on the opposite corner (Orchard Street) which debuted in January.
