Is It Sauce Or Gravy?

In the culinary world, there are many fun topics to debate. One of the ideas we love most here at Jonathan’s Ristorante is the difference between a sauce or gravy?. If you’ve been to our restaurant in Huntington, NY, you know we have plenty of dishes with these toppings. However, if you’d like to learn about what makes these two things different, please continue reading.

What Makes A Gravy?

When thinking about gravy, you wouldn’t be at fault for having your mind immediately jumping to Thanksgiving. A staple in that holiday meal, gravy can enhance the sometimes bland and plain tasting turkey you’re being served. The creation of this topping starts by gathering the juices of meat that is being prepared. Then, the juices can be combined with any of the below to thicken the liquid and make the perfect gravy:

  • Chicken or beef broth.
  • Wine.
  • Milk.
  • Flour.
  • Cornstarch.

Is It A Sauce?

The sauce is an extremely versatile topping. There are so many sauces to choose from, each doing its part to enhance a meal. While to be considered a gravy, it needs to be meat-based, this is not the case with sauces. And while sauces can contain meat substances, they are also made up of other ingredients, one of the most notable tomatoes. Sauces are easily digestible and can make the dishes at our restaurant in Huntington, NY, unbeatable when it comes to the competition.

Dishes To Try   

While we have nothing against those who like to enjoy their food plain, we know just how much sauces and gravies can improve a meal. That is why our restaurant in Huntington serves multiple dishes that include them. To give your taste buds a treat, we recommend ordering any of the below:

  • Pasta bolognese.
  • Linguine Neri con Gamberi.
  • Branzino.
  • Salmone Scozzese.
