    "I think that's one of the biggest compliments," says co-owner Tara Boucher. "People leave saying they feel well."
    The success of vegetable bowls served over a scant seven months at Sauce has bowled over Boucher, 41, and 47-year-old husband Brad Boucher. The couple made the "counterintuitive choice" to open a restaurant in an inhospitable economy. Cooking their home recipes for the public, however, was an obvious opportunity.
    "I always felt like I could get anybody to eat anything," says Tara.
