Sauce Shedding Plywood at 78 Rivington

The western exposure of the forthcoming Frank Prisinzano endeavor was recently freed from its plywood enclosure.  We presently have a full view of the Allen Street entrance, which boasts and black-and-white color dynamic between facade and marquee.  Moreover, the onetime blank wall often used to advertise previous eateries (i.e. Kampuchea, Bun & Co.) now has two window cutouts.

Choice of signage is rather convoluted, though.  It’s basically a tell-all bulletin board about what Sauce is offering – handmade pastas, fresh meat delivery, local sustainable nose to tail butcher, etc.

What do you think of the storefront choice?
