The Nuh-Uh Girl sent me a link to this Memphis Business Journal article about Sauces, the new restaurant to open this fall on Main Street between Union and Gayoso. Their motto is “our plate, your canvas,” and is taken from a menu they have where you select a meat and then top it off with a signature sauce. (They also have a regular menu if that’s not your thing.) The article says they will have eight regular sauces, with featured sauces rotated weekly.
The article goes on to say that Sauces wants to focus on locals, Downtowners who will come back more than once a week. It says they will have a full bar with beer, wine, and liquor, as well as martini and mojito menus, so it sounds like Sauces has a good understanding of what Downtowners like in a restaurant.
The article lists sandwiches at $7-8 and entrees at $10-15, so it sounds like it will be affordable. And, “the interior of it is going to be the coolest thing on South Main,” said one of the owners.
I haven’t looked forward to a restaurant’s opening this much since rumors started flying about the Majestic Grille about this time last year. Should be a great addition to the Main Street Mall.
