A Sandwich a Day: Raguboy at Sauce

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Sauce's lunch menu includes some gravy-based "sloppy sandwiches," with your choice of meatballs, sausage, or braciole in Chef Frank Prisinzano's grandmother's very own meat sauce. While the meatballs in the Raguboy ($9.95) weren't the best I've had, I certainly don't regret my decision.

The meatballs are smaller than most I have seen, and come smothered in a Sunday gravy made from chicken, pork, and beef stock, with plenty of garlic. It's a lovely sauce, and we would have liked even more of it to earn the "sloppy" moniker. The sesame seed brioche bun is an awesome bread choice. It's rich yet puffy with a tender crumb, letting it soak up the sauce without falling apart.
