HOUSTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — “If it isn’t fresh, don’t serve it!” – that’s the Russo’s New York Pizzeria promise. The brand’s commitment to fresh, made-from-scratch food is the driving force behind its new menu items, which burst with fresh and exceptional flavors guaranteed to delight both loyal and new diners.
Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen – which offers dine-in, takeout, delivery, and catering – is passionate about menu innovation. Through Chef Anthony Russo’s hand-picked ingredients and commitment to imaginative new tastes, healthy and gluten-free options have been perfectly crafted to showcase fresh, high-quality ingredients. Just like any member of the family, our guest’s dietary constraints are something we consider in the kitchen. The increased consumer demand for vegetable-rich and celiac-conscious dishes has inspired Chef Russo to grow the menu options for a variety of diets.
“Being able to adapt our menu like this showcases our commitment to staying ahead of dining trends,” said Chef Russo. “It’s a joy to be able to create new dishes and pizza varieties for our life-long fans.”
Russo’s New York Pizzeria has only used the highest-quality and authentic ingredients since its inception – including importing 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 – and the restaurant’s healthy menu items build on that commitment to authenticity.
“The art to making great-tasting food is using the highest-quality, authentic ingredients – and if that requires going the extra-mile and sourcing items from around the world, we do it,” said Chef Russo, who has been committed to quality since 1978 when the family opened its first Russo’s restaurant. “Dishes on our menu, which includes 100-year-old family recipes, feature nutrient-rich ingredients that innovatively renew traditional favorites with a healthy twist. We’re excited to bring these fresh flavors to our loyal following – we’re certain these items will complement our existing dishes perfectly.”
