Celebrate Fridays During Lent at Russo's: Delicious Meatless Options Abound!

February 28, 2024

Lenten season has begun, and many of us are turning our attention toward incorporating more meatless options into our diets. But that doesn't mean sacrificing flavor or variety! At Russo's New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen, we're here to show you that Fridays during Lent can be just as delicious and satisfying as ever.

A Feast for the Senses

Russo's boasts a diverse menu brimming with mouthwatering vegetarian and seafood options, perfect for adhering to Lenten guidelines. Indulge in our classic Margherita pizza, a symphony of fresh mozzarella, tomato sauce, and fragrant basil. Craving something a bit more adventurous? Explore our Vegetarian pizza, featuring a vibrant medley of vegetables like spinach, peppers, olives, and mushrooms.

For pasta lovers, our Fettuccine Alfredo is a delightful choice. Imagine fettuccine pasta crafted in-house, tossed in a creamy Pecorino Romano sauce made with Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil. Or how about Russo's signature handmade ricotta cheese ravioli, delicately prepared with Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil, and garnished with fresh basil. Served with your choice of Russo's homemade marinara or Alfredo sauce.

Seafood Sensations

Seafood lovers won't be disappointed either. Our Shrimp Scampi includes large Gulf shrimp, sautéed with a flavorful blend of Pinot Grigio, lemon, and garlic sauce, along with capers and tomatoes, served over fettuccine pasta cooked in Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil. Feeling adventurous? Try our Shrimp Fra Diavolo, a spicy tomato sauce bursting with flavor and featuring succulent shrimp.

Beyond the Main Course

Don't forget to explore our selection of appetizers and salads. Our Bruschetta is a delightful starter, featuring fresh tomatoes, basil, and garlic piled high on toasted crostini bread. For a lighter option, our Caprese salad combines the vibrant flavors of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, drizzled with a balsamic glaze.

At Russo's, we understand that dining out is about more than just the food. It's about creating lasting memories with loved ones in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our friendly staff is always happy to answer your questions and guide you through our extensive menu, ensuring you have a delightful dining experience.
