Cheesecake War & Osteria Lunch at Davio’s
Today, Thursday, July 28, is the final day to vote for Davio’s in what I’m calling the Amtrak Series of Cheesecake. Over the past two days, Davio’s has gone head to head with New York City’s ‘Cesca in a Cheesecake Challenge. Each restaurant has given the other its popular dessert to let diners in both cities try for themselves and judge whose is better.
On Tuesday, I got to try both the Vanilla Bean Cheesecake with Blueberry Compote from Davio’s and the Mascarpone Cheesecake with Orange Cream and Orange Brittle from ‘Cesca. Obviously, as a Philly girl, you know who got my vote. You can still decide for yourself, but the voting ends after tonight’s service. So stop in and try the “Cheesecake War Dessert” for $10.
Davio’s is also promoting its Osteria Menu, an ever changing 3-course prix fix menu served Monday – Friday during lunch from 11:30am – 2:30pm for $26 per person. During my lunch, I got to try a Crab and Avocado appetizer, a Panko Crusted Fluke dish with a lobster sauce, and the cheesecake.
