Sauce in Summer

Sauce Pizza and Wine has brought back their fabulous Sauce Summer Sampler.

For a mere $22, you can enjoy a choice of one of their great salads, a pizza and either 2 glasses of wine or beer. That’s one of the best deals in town.

We went to the Grant Road store last night and had the watermelon and arugula salad, DSCN2762the spicy chicken sausage pizza DSCN2763

and a glass of Sangiovese each. Our dinner was hosted.

The Grant Road store is a little fancier than the others in town, but not so fancy that you have to get all dressed up. Indeed, the good-sized crowd was a mix of families, couples and mixed groups of friends.

Service was top-notch.

And the food, which arrived at the table in no time, was great. No surprise there, I’ve never had a bad meal at Sauce.

The bright, crisp, refreshing flavors in the salad – watermelon, arugula, feta cheese, red onions, jicama, roasted pumpkin seeds in a light, while balsamic dressing – were a great counterpoint to the spicy pizza that also had poblanos and smoked mozzarella.

So. whether you’re on a date, with friends or dining alone, head on over to the closest Sauce Pizza and Wine. Great food at a great price can’t be beat.
