Sauce, Glastonbury CT, Please say it is not true!

Ok I do not mean to alarm anyone but I have now heard from quite a few people that Sauce in Glastonbury is closing. I have been a couple of times and have enjoyed the food. I hope they are not throwing in the towel so soon. I thought they were doing ok. Does anyone out there know what is really going on ?

    1. Ok, I have some clarification here ... Glastonbury Life reported that Sauce is seeing hard times like most restaurants and is undergoing menu changes. They reported that they have heard the many rumors going around and wanted to clarify that they are just undergoing some changes.

        1. Well we went to Sauce on Saturday night and found it to be good but not really that great. It actually could be described as a bit uneven. I can confirm that they are not closing but that they are redoing the menu. There were six of us and one had a different menu than the others. The reason given was that they had a new chef. Certain items on that odd menu were missing (veal) and other items were different (the old menu had lobster in one dish). When we asked why this was, the waitress said they were altering the menu. It seemed that there was a broad range of prices for items. $35 for beef and $19 for chicken or pork and not a lot in between. That is pretty broad for an upscale restaurant.

          Also, a number of items on the menu were not available which made ordering difficult. The wine we selected was not available as were one of the appetizers and several of the side dishes. Anyway, three of us order the pork, two had tuna and one the seafood pasta. None of us raved about the meals. I will say that the bill was less than we thought it was going to be. $300 for six people with two bottles of wine, appetizers and a couple of side dishes was not bad. Anyway, while the experience was not bad, it was not great either. We will be heading down to 2 Hopewell in a couple of weeks and will see how that ends up. Jay
