red-sauce parlor(redirected from red sauce parlors)
An Italian-American restaurant known for serving traditional pasta dishes with tomato-based sauce. They new Italian restaurant that opened up downtown is a throwback to those authentic red-sauce parlors that my parents used to take me to as a kid. I grew up working in my grandfather's red-sauce parlor, so I know just about everything there is to know about pasta.
