Tiberio Custom Meats Departs Sauce, Reopening in Bushwick

One of the better Italian restaurants in the neighborhood just hit a few bumps in the road. We are told that Sauce at Rivington and Allen Streets stopped serving lunch within the last couple weeks, and put the kibosh on the pseudo-permanent daytime butcher business. You know, Tiberio Custom Meats, what Frank Prisinzano previously referred to as “butcher theater.”

Tiberio Meats was a short-lived affair, having butchered its business in the windows of 78 Rivington Street for just over a year. Principal Adam Tiberio was first hired at the outset as menu consultant, and eventually gained a footprint for his company. Despite the recent exit, though a new Bushwick location is already in the works (location still unknown).

His is not the only Sauce departure, though. We hear of some staff turnover as well. The silver lining in all this change is for the cash-strapped – Sauce finally accepts credit cards.

And if memory serves, this is what Tiberio looked like each morning in the windows of 78 Rivington Street.
