CLEVELAND — A familiar name in Cleveland restaurants has returned to a familiar spot.
On Saturday, Sauce The City resumed service inside the Galley building in Ohio City on 1400 W. 25th Street for take out and delivery.
Owner Victor Searcy confirmed the news in an email to 3News on Saturday evening. "We are back in the space, open for business, looking for three other concepts to join us. We are naming the new space “Sauce The City." We are hoping to encompass the whole city of CLEVELAND with different unique flavor concepts."
Sauce The City's triumphant return comes less than two months after Ohio City Galley closed its doors on February 28. Sauce The City was one of Ohio City Galley's four tenants at the time.
Ohio City Galley, which had opened its doors in October of 2018, was one part food hall and one part business incubator – a relaxed public space where multiple food-service operators could test out new concepts in a low-risk situation, and diners could enjoy those foods in a communal dining hall and bar setting.
Since Ohio City Galley's closing, Searcy has kept Sauce The City's name alive through pop up services as well as with its 'Feed the Nurses Challenge,' which asks users on social media to tag a local restaurant and challenge them to provide lunch for their local health care workers battling COVID-19 on the front lines. Use the hashtag #FeedTheNurses.
