ALLEGRO COOKS UP PA BEEF BACKER AWARD HONORS
BEDFORD (Oct. 13, 2011) – Following a difficult selection process, the Pennsylvania Beef Council is pleased to announce The Allegro Restaurant, Altoona, as the state winner of the 2011 Foodservice Beef Backer Contest.
This prestigious award program recognizes restaurants that go the extra mile in marketing beef in their establishments and on their menus. Applicants from across the state submitted entries to showcase their innovation and leadership in many areas including creative menu applications, new cut utilization, and effective communication programs.
Allegro will receive an award plaque to display in the restaurant and will represent the Commonwealth in the national foodservice competition. National Beef Backer winners will be announced in January 2012 at the cattle industry annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee.
Established in 1978, Allegro offers authentic Italian cuisine, created from time-honored, family recipes. The menu features a number of decadent steak and veal entrees including a tasty filet mignon and mouthwatering veal medallions.
Allegro has also been recognized with veal menuing awards, boasting more than 15 veal inspired selections.
"For many years, we have taken great pride in purchasing the finest quality beef and then giving it that special touch before it gets to the plate,” said Allegro owner Daniel Taddei. “With all the great restaurants in Pennsylvania, it is quite an honor to receive this award.”
Allegro is open for lunch every Thursday and Friday from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., and for dinner Monday through Thursday from 4 – 9 p.m. Weekend dinner hours are Friday from 4 – 9:30 p.m., and Saturday from 4 –10 p.m. To view a complete menu, visit www.allegro-restaurant.com or contact the restaurant at 814-946-5216.
