Sneak Peek Inside Sauce at 78 Rivington

Posted on: October 10th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Frank Prisinzano’s Sauce restaurant is making final strides toward its official opening, pegged sometime by the end of the month. But all progress under lock and key.

Now it’s time for some behind-the-plywood shots of Sauce, all captured late last week. As you can see, the exterior of four-year-old Kampuchea is officially history, instead replaced with a more rustic wooden feel. Up above, some teaser signage has made its way to the marquee, promising “family style feasts,” “meat deliveries,” and “quick food service.”

And here’s an interior shot showing the tiled floors and bar stools.

Sauce was originally scheduled for an October 4 open, but obviously that’s not in the cards.  Let’s just leave it at “imminent.”
