Authentic New York Style Pizzeria to Open at the Firethorne Community Later This Year

KATY, Texas – Russo’s New York Pizzeria announced today a signed deal to bring the authentically Italian fast-casual restaurant to the Firethorne community in Katy later this year. Local entrepreneurs Eduardo and Jessica Haas will open their restaurant in the attractive residential and retail area, located at 1708 Spring Green Blvd, #180, in November 2015.

“There’s no denying the demand for quality Italian dining options here in Katy. We offer original Italian recipes that visitors and local residents will fall in love with,” said Chef Anthony Russo, founder and CEO of Russo’s Restaurants. “As the city grows, the community seeks newer, fresher concepts that are fun for the entire family. We can’t wait to give our loyal fans even more of what they crave – delicious, New York-style pizza and handcrafted Italian recipes in a cool and trendy interior that is a cozy, family-friendly atmosphere.”

The Russo’s name has become synonymous with delicious New York-style pizza and authentic Italian meals. Beyond the brand’s specialty pizzas, menu items include fresh salads (insalata), soups (zuppe) and homemade pastas. Authentic Italian cannoli, fresh seafood, chicken, veal and flatbread sandwiches are just some of the distinctive dishes on the menu.

“If it’s not fresh, we don’t serve it,” said Russo. “The emphasis on quality food is apparent from our menu creations to our open kitchen concept. We want our guests to know that serving great food is our No. 1 priority.”

The majority of Russo’s Restaurants locations are in south central Texas. There are additional multi-unit franchise opportunities throughout Texas, in the Greater Houston market, as well as San Antonio, Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth. This will be Katy’s fourth New York Pizzeria – existing locations are on Echo Lane, Westgreen Road and Cinco Ranch.

Today, Russo’s New York Pizzeria has garnered a cult-like following for their truly authentic and delicious Italian dishes made from the freshest ingredients and its New York-style pizza. The restaurants blend premium recipes with the magic created around a homemade Italian meal.
