Davio's Cheesesteak Spring Rolls Now Sold At Patriots' Gillette Stadium And Your Grocer's Freezer

[Steve DiFillippo, the owner of Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse,] laughs when he thinks that a spring roll with Philly cheese steak filling has become one of the more popular menu items at his restaurant chain, and now a fast-selling product in about 900 supermarkets in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

A frozen version of the Philly Cheese Steak Spring Roll that was originally created by a Davio’s chef in Philadelphia six years ago is now being manufactured for retailers at Yankee Trader Seafood on Oak Street in Pembroke.

“Twenty-four years of owning a high level restaurant and I’ve become the ‘Philly roll guy,’” said DiFillippo, who is 48. “With all my training, being a restaurateur and chef, it’s really funny. I get more e-mails about the Philly roll than I do about the restaurant.”
Apparently, they are sold at Giant Supermarkets here.
