Frank's Sauce Restaurant in the Lower East Side

The Frank Restaurants are East Village favorites for delicious Italian meals just like your "nonna" used to make, at an affordable price. From the crispy thin crust pizzas at Little Frankie’s to Supper’s daily risotto specials and Frank’s tender seared salmon for under $20, there is something for everyone at Frank Prisinzano’s cozy restaurants.
Sauce Restaurant is the newest addition to this sisterhood of Italian Restaurants, offering brunch and dinner to delight Lower East Side foodies. Whether it is the silverware chandeliers, displayed butcher shop meat case, East Village Radio-selected rockin’ music, or the old-school chalkboards displaying handwritten house specialties, the familiar Frank charm is all over Sauce.
The pastas are homemade and prepared daily. The pappardelle with Bolognese is rich and hearty, rivaling Locanda Verde. Don’t worry about your vegetarian pals, they can dine here too, despite the meat-friendly menu. 

Make sure to order a few plates to share, as these tiny pasta dishes are perfect for sampling a variety. The “Ice Box” Fusilli (marinara, soft ricotta cheese, pecorino and oreganata breadcrumbs), crusty and chewy Baked Farro Macaroni and the Grass Fed Bolognese with handmade pappardelle are excellent choices to share for a carb fix without feeling guilty.
Consider also ordering one or two of their sandwiches, such as a Raguboy, a sloppy meat and cheese sandwich on brioche served with a side salad.  Choose a meat including grass fed meatballs, sausages, stringless braciole (prepared in their grandmother’s tomato gravy), roast beef, heritage turkey, heritage pork (prepared in sugo d'arrosto, a rich meat gravy), bollito (slow braised), pulled beef, or pulled pork (prepared with salsa verde). Choose a cheese from fontina, provolone or mozzarella. 

Plan your next dinner date or relaxing brunch indulging at Sauce in the Lower East Side!
