GloboMaestro Video: Snout-to-Tail Italian on NYC's Lower East Side

Exclusive GloboMaestro Video  |  We’ve heard there are more Italian restaurants in NYC than any other kind. Still, Gotham has an appetite for more. Enter Sauce.  

Just a few months into the opening of his rustic Italian trattoria, owner and chef Frank Prisinzano's (who also runs Frank, Lil’ Frankies, and Supper) temple to meat—and, of course, Italian red sauce—is enjoying some well-seasoned buzz. His passion for tomatoes (recent tweet: “Tomatoes are thought to originate in Peru. The name comes from the Aztec “xitomatl,” which means “plump thing with navel.”) almost surpasses his love of the animal, all of the animal. The snout-to-tail restaurant even has an in-house butcher, who flashes his knives in front of a sidewalk-facing window. Call it culinary performance art. You can also buy cuts to go. And sandwiches, too, at the take-out window.

Take a quick tour in this new GloboMaestro video with the concierge from the nearby Bowery Hotel, who’s on the pulse of Downtown’s hotspots.

Sauce, 78 Rivington St., Lower East Side, New York City; (212) 420-7700.
