Vincent’s Sauce
The Original Vincent's restaurant is in Little Italy at 199 Mott Street. Vincent's proudly declares that it's been around for a century, since 1904.

I don't particularly care for its famous "Vincent's Sauce," but some people love it. You can order it from Vincent's web site. Try it sweet, medium, or hot. (For what it's worth: I found the "medium" still too hot.)

Our Illustrious History...

Following the Historic turn of the century, ending the Illustrious Gay 90's, Giuseppe and Carmela Siano established the now World Famous Vincent's Clam Bar, in 1904, named after their son. The sidewalk clam bar was located at the corner of Mott and Hester street in little italy, New York City, Where it still flourishes today, serving succulent varieties of Italian Seafood. It is the original home of Vincent's Sauce.

It was also in 1904 that Carmala Siano introduced her secret old world recipe for the internationally celebrated Vincent's Sauce. Many have tried to imitate her secret ingredients and processing unsuccessfully!

Vincent's is proud to have preserved the secret of the ancient recipe and to be able to serve you for your enjoyment!

- The entire Vincent's Family
