Read on to find out about the history of Italian foods, the history of Italian foods on the menu at George’s, and our favorite entrees!
Italian Foods in American Diners
Italian food made its way to American with Italian immigrants. Just like any cultural group, newly immigrated Italians shared their culture and cooking in their new homes, and the delicious dishes quickly caught on! While many recipes were modified to match the ingredients available in the new country, this went on to become the foundation of Italian-American food—a cuisine of its own sort! As innovative Italians began opening restaurants, Italian-American food swept the nation and became quite popular.
