Classic Italian Dish | Sunday Sauce for Two at Racanelli’s New York Italian
851 Central Ave, Scarsdale
The hearty, homespun Italian-American gorge-fest known as Sunday sauce (or Sunday “gravy,” if you’re Neapolitan or Sicilian) is a ritual consisting of mamas, nonnas, extended family, and overflowing serving dishes of homemade food, usually after church service. The Sunday Sauce for Two at Racanelli’s is an homage to the custom: a sizable plain white boat of a serving dish brimming with red-sauced al dente rigatoni, meatballs, beef braciole, sausage, short ribs, and grilled slices of garlic bread. It’s $36 and, with no surcharge for sharing, you may want to invite Uncle Sal and Cousin Antonella to help you wipe the delicious dish clean.
