A new edition to the Lower East Side, Sauce, is serving up Italian-American style sandwiches done right. Similar to a sloppy joe, the Heritage Pork "Raguboy" ($5.95) is a small but super-rich sandwich, which we had topped with provolone, on a sesame seed brioche. The pork is unbelievably tender; cooked in a sauce enhanced with the drippings of the meat, all of which the fluffy, buttery brioche instantly begins to soak up. While bun was a little too big, the incredibly savory sauce and the richness of the sandwich was enough to leave anyone who ordered this craving it again in the future.
