It Might be Awhile Before ‘Sauce’ Reopens on Rivington Street
Don’t hold your breath for Sauce, the Rivington Street Italian restaurant that’s been closed since late-December.
Even though its eponymous pizzeria is serving slices next door, the OG Sauce, a locals favorite, remains down for the count thanks to a kitchen fire over the holiday season. The blaze KO’d both the eatery and a couple of residential apartments on the second floor.
However, employees working in the new pizzeria (the old Sweet Buttons shop) confirmed that Sauce will probably reopen in a “few months.”
Meanwhile, the only official comment we could wrangle was from their public relations team, who noted that the Italian restaurant is “closed until further notice.”
Not exactly the best of messages.
