No one has ever accused the cheesesteak of being a healthy dinner choice, even when it’s named one of the top five sandwiches in America like Vesuvio’s Cheesesteak BLT. But that doesn’t mean you can’t eat healthy at Vesuvio while your dining partner digs into a sandwich of steak and bacon.
Vesuvio has added “Optimal Choice” items in its dinner, vegetarian, and bar menus. The Optimal Choice menu items are formulated by Optimal Wellness, Inc. nutrition specialist Gabrielle Sigal and provide balanced portions of whole grains, lean protein, vegetables, as well as healthy fats and fiber.
