Torrisi Italian Specialties is the brain child of chef owners, Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi. During the day it’s a sandwich shop but at night the small Nolita (NYC) venue, located at 250 Mulberry Street (Prince Street) is transformed into an 18-seat, prix fixe, Italian dinner hot spot.
As many of you know, I am addicted to most everything spicy and, Torrisi’s Spicy Sauce is no exception.
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and mix until slightly smooth. Makes about 2 cups.
