Sauce introduced a new grab-and-go pizza concept at its Lower East Side restaurant yesterday. Their take on thin-crust pizza, dubbed LES Pizza, is dispensed through the window of 78 Rivington Street, and available 5pm to 12am daily. Delivery is also an option, via Seamless.

The so-called pizza window just off the kitchen on the Allen Street facade.

Sauce owner Adam Elzer, who purchased the establishment (with partner Shane Covey) from founder Frank Prisinzano last year, settled on thin-crust style for LES Pizza. Specialty pies are featured daily both at the window and inside Sauce proper. For instance, the “Blanco Pie” with fresh mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta, pecorino, kale, and truffle oil, or the “Caprese Pie” with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, egg, pancetta, fontina, provolone, and truffle oil.

It goes without saying that the competition in Hell Square is fairly cutthroat. Between Rosario’s, La Margarita, Pizza Beach, and the dollar pizza joints, plus Trapizzino, the bases are covered.

East Village restaurateur Frank Prisinzano opened Sauce at 78 Rivington back in October of 2011. Its original concept included a sidecar butcher space run by Tiberio Custom Meats. That relationship ended two years later, and the back room became a permanent dining area.

And before Sauce, it was Kampuchea and Bun & Co

And then There’s this Apartment with a Tub in the Kitchen

The standard pre-war tenement layout included a bathtub in the kitchen. It made sense, as this was the central location of plumbing.

The tub here made sense given […]
