Lenny's Pizza in Brooklyn was highlighted in the 1977 blockbuster when Travolta's Tony Manero character ordered two slices and ate them one on top of the other as he walked down the street. The restaurant has become a popular tourist spot with people still ordering the double-decker slices.

The Daily News reports the event also promoted Travolta's new movie, Gotti, in which he portrays the late Mafia boss John Gotti.
