Frank Prisinzano does it again- and this time it’s on the Lower East Side. Sauce is a great neighborhood spot serving up good homestyle Italian food in a casual, rustic environment fully stocked with a butcher on site and take-out window.
For the most part, the food is spot on and so are the prices. So it’s not a big deal that it’s cash only. It’s not the most comfortable dining experience because of spacing and volume of noise but the chandelier of silverware and open kitchen make up for it.
Taraji not only knows how to bring her ferocious and dynamic energy to the big and small screen, but also to the restaurant scene. She’s a gal who really enjoys good eats!
Currently, Taraji can be seen starring in the CBS hit show “Person of Interest” and in the upcoming movie “Think Like A Man” based on Steve Harvey’s book “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man” in theaters on March 9th.

Chef Alessandro (Alex) Stratta brings a little Vegas to NYC by way of his new rustic Italian resto in the West Village, Bigoli. The food and service were on point, and I fell in love with the skylight that’s in the middle of the dining room.
Our senses were piqued as soon as we sat down because of the wood-burning oven. We sampled a wide range of items from Stratta’s inventive Italian menu that left us wanting more…especially the pesto dipping sauce.
