US-based New York-style pizza chain Russo’s New York Pizzeria is all set to open its sixth location in Dubai in October.

Russo’s New York Pizzeria which claims to be the only authentic New York-style, Italian restaurant and pizzeria franchise concept will open its restaurant in Uptown Mirdiff at Corner 47 Algeria St – Mirdiff, Dubai.

The eatery is expected to have Russo’s updated casual dining layout which includes an open-kitchen concept and pizza chef station for guests where they can watch Russo’s chefs making hand-tossed pizzas and homemade meals fresh from scratch.

Commenting on the launch of his newest restaurant in Dubai, Mr. Anthony Russo, Founder and CEO, Russo’s New York Pizzeria expressed that “We are excited to offer Dubai families, friends and business associates the seventh location for authentic New York-style pizzeria and Italian,” further adding that, “Blending the simplicity of a pizzeria with the freshness of an upscale Italian restaurant, we deliver a chef-driven dining experience in a fast-casual setting that is unlike any other restaurant in the UAE.”

With the family mantra of “If it isn’t fresh, don’t serve it!”, Russo’s cooks an expansive menu that blends generations of family recipes with fresh, seasonal ingredients and authentic Italian imports like Pecorino Romano cheese from Emilia Romagna, Italy; aged-balsamic vinegar from a centuries-old vineyard in Italy; and extra virgin olive oil from Partanna, Italy.

The chain is passionate about its menu innovation. The restaurant is proud to introduce new menu items that are perfectly crafted to showcase fresh, high-quality ingredients, highlighting Chef Russo’s commitment to imaginative new tastes.

The new gourmet pizza and pasta menu items include the Truffle Mushroom pizza, Spicy Chicken Alfredo, Homemade Lasagna, and a great selection of gluten-free and vegan menu items. Chef Anthony has perfected the Dubai menu to adapt to Middle East favorites and will feature fresh, local seafood, Halal meats, risotto and saffron, truffle mushroom soup, eggplant dishes, gnocchi pasta and Mediterranean-influenced dips and spreads.

The chain is exploring opportunities to increase growth internationally, specifically in the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

“There is a huge appetite for our brand and together with our talented franchise partners we are accelerating our global growth,” Mr. Russo observed while adding that, “the franchise opportunity is proving to be lucrative for our current international franchisees and we are excited for their continued success.”

Russo’s Restaurants offers a rare franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs interested in proven brands that are entirely chef-created, chef-inspired, and chef-driven.
