Calling on All Lasagna and Cheesecake Lovers!

July 21, 2023

There’s nothing more fun than celebrating food-themed days. While some commemorations are solemn or sophisticated, others are downright delicious and joyful. Lasagna Day (July 29th) and Cheesecake Day (July 30th) represent the latter with a back-to-back helping of tasty amusement.

We invite you to celebrate one (or both) of those with Russo’s New York Pizzeria. In the meantime, here’s a reminder of why those are two of our perennial favorites.

Russo's Lasagna

Lasagna Day: July 29th

Lasagna is nothing less than a true classic icon, a Russo’s family favorite, and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!

This is one of those rich entrees that rivals baked ziti and deep-dish spaghetti for the crown of “most satiating” menu item. You definitely won’t leave hungry after enjoying a healthy filling of fresh tomatoes, pasta, onions, herbs, oregano, and more. It’s also somewhat like baked ravioli, a fellow pasta dish with several layered ingredients sewed together to form one delightful meal; terrific for family dining.

So, if you’re looking for a homemade, authentic Italian recipe, then look no further because it’s here, waiting for you when you celebrate Lasagna Day at Russo’s. We make our patented version with fresh pasta, Italian cheeses, braised beef, and special Chianti-braised meat sauce. Instead of settling on that so-so, frozen lasagna from the grocery store, this is the real deal, and one of our most popular Chef Russo Specialities.

Russo's Cheesecake

Cheesecake Day: July 30th

What about a nice dessert item?

While cheesecake is one of the best, any day of the week, we hope you’ll join us for extra fun July 30th. Our version comes straight from a NY bakery, offering that creamy, sweet, and unforgettable flavor. It involves a recipe that was perfected well over 100 years ago, but cheesecake has been around, in some form or another, since 2,000 BC. There’s some dispute over the exact origin of this delectable dessert, but some believe it came from the Greek island of Samos many millennia ago.

Where do you go to find the best cheesecake, imported straight from New York?
