Update: Saus in Boston Reopens After Temporarily Closing Due to Broken Water Pipe

[Ed note: This article was updated on August 3 to reflect the fact that Saus has reopened.]

A popular restaurant in downtown Boston that features Belgian street food and more has closed for the time being.

According to a Twitter post from the place, Saus is shut down for now, with the message saying "Hey, friends! We are temporarily closed and are unsure of when we'll be reopening. Stick to our Twitter feed for updates." A similar post on Facebook was also put up this afternoon, though no other information has been given on either Twitter or Facebook, or their website. As soon as we find out more about the status of the restaurant, we will post an update here.

[July 31 update: It appears that this is indeed a temporary closing, as Saus just added the following: "The building we're in is SUPER old, so we're just dealing with some issues" followed by this: "Update: a pipe broke so we're having a little trouble running water - fingers crossed we're back up soon! Again, thanks for the concern!"]

[August 3 update: According to a new post on its Facebook page, Saus is open once again, with the note saying "We can't thank you all enough for your incredible support after last week's temporary closure. We didn't mean to scare you! We are OPEN OPEN OPEN and expected to stay that way...we want to see your smiling faces."]

Saus first opened in the spring of 2011, featuring such items as liege waffles, poutine, and pommes frites, with more options such as salads and sandwiches eventually being added as well.

The address for Saus is 33 Union Street, Boston, MA, 02108; its website can be found at
