Boston’s foremost fry purveyor adds a vegetarian counterpart in Somerville next week: Saus, open near Faneuil Hall since 2011, celebrates the grand opening of its second location on Saturday, December 8, when it joins a stacked lineup of food and drink vendors at Bow Market in Union Square (1 Bow Market Way). (The doors are technically open already — albeit with a limited menu and limited hours — so swing by this weekend for a sneak peek if you’re in the neighborhood, or wait for the official opening on the 8th.)

Saus Somerville carries over its poutine and sandwich focus from Boston, but in an all-vegetarian version, featuring, for example, a miso-mushroom poutine gravy. All items can be made vegan by request, too.

For its sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs at the new location, Saus uses various meat substitutes, including the Impossible Burger (a plant-based beef-like substance), tofu, veggie burgers, falafel, and Beyond sausage. The Bow Market restaurant also serves grain and green bowls with various toppings, such as spicy crispy tofu.

A vegetarian chili-cheese dog, pictured on a bright yellow counter, is made with Beyond sausage and topped with chopped scallions.

As a bonus, Saus also sells a selection of beer and cider, meant to complement, not compete with, the offerings across the courtyard at Remnant Brewing. (Diners can also opt to bring their food into Remnant or Bow Market’s wine bar, Rebel Rebel.)

The Saus shop is one of the larger spaces at Bow Market and features a counter lining the walls of the space and separating a chalk menu from detailed blue tiling that covers the lower walls and the floor, reminiscent of a swimming pool.

Saus adds to a bountiful (and growing) mix of food and drink vendors at Bow Market, including Hooked Fish Shop, Buenas, Jaju Pierogi, Perillas, Maca, Hot Box, and more. The market also features a number of non-food vendors selling art, jewelry, records, vintage clothing, and more.
