February 7th is known as National Fettuccine Alfredo Day. Honestly, we should just celebrate this holiday all week long. Here's the top places to order this classic dish in Central New York.
National Fettuccine Alfredo Day is observed annually on February 7th to honor Alfredo di Lelio, an Italian restaurateur, who created the famous dish back in 1908. The dish came into existence after his son was born back in 1908:
After his wife had given birth to their first son that year, she did not have an appetite. To help encourage her to eat, he created a dish of noodles, cheese and butter. She liked the dish so much that she thought he should put it on the menu at his small restaurant in Rome. Everyone around the world has been enjoying this dish ever since."
